Babyproofing a Rail-less Staircase

Good Questions

Q: We really love our staircase, but as you can see we have no railing. Our little one will be mobile very soon, and we simply can't afford to have a custom railing built and installed right now. Can anyone suggest a non-eyesore solution for gating off the bottom of our steps?
