Q: I need to come up with something that I can put between our couch and the stair railing behind. Our 1 year old daughter will soon be able to climb up on the couch on her own, and then we'll be in big trouble. We want to build/buy something that would prevent her from falling over the railing (as the couch and railing are pretty flush). Any ideas of something functional but stylish that we could have in this spot?
