A secured-to-the-wall half door instead of a wedged in baby gate. Interesting. Bonus is that it doesn't have to be permanent if you don't want it to be...unscrew it, patch things up. Voila!
Build Your Own Baby Gate. This is great for the bottom of the stairs, or the top, if you used a more child-proof latch design. Maybe just putting the latch on the side the kids aren't supposed to be on would keep little fingers from opening this. I REALLY love how it looks--and it's really just a half door. Perfect.
Oh my word...LOVE!!!! My nieces & nephews have to so this when their babies come!!!!
