If you have a child or a pet that you need to keep away from an unsafe area this can be a great DIY project for you! Of course, baby gates you can purchase in the store but they aren’t long enough, they are too high, not cute or cost too much. To help you get started we have gathered some great DIY baby gates for stairs ideas, to keep your children safe from common household dangers.
