We finally have to finish a deck rail - I need an inexpensive idea for balusters or something that won't completely obstruct my view. I don't like the 2x2's, or lattice. I do like the look of aluminum/metal in plain black - either square or flat - but hate the thought of spending $250 just for the balusters. I love the look of balcony panels - but getting a plasma cut piece of metal for each section is way way more than I want to spend. I'm looking for the dirt cheap alternative.
