AT:SF, I am looking for suggestions for affordable railings for my loft and stairs. I am thinking of making railings out of steel pipes. Has anyone else done this? Does anyone have any other suggestions? I have a small budget so I am leaning towards DIY. I am not a huge wood person I tend to lean towards industrial or white mod style. I am also going to paint my floors white in this revamp if that would change your suggestions at all.
Steel pipes would probably look great -- but you may need to check to see whether they'd be to code.
