Picture of Pirate-Themed Stair Gate and Window Covers
Our home has windows that open at floor level, and accesible stairs. Adding a gate at the top of the stairs and covering the windows makes it kid-safe; designing it with Because We Can makes it cool.

Step 1: Before Pictures

Picture of Before Pictures
Here are some before pictures. Not only are these before installing the covers and gate, they are before we ripped out the nasty carpet and cigarette-smoke-filled drapes.

Note how the windows open at floor level over a two-story drop -- perfect for crawling right out! Similarly, the spacing of the railing over the stairs is approximately 10% larger than a baby head.
It look really nice! also from the outside
I saw this, and thought of course these guys would do something way cool! Your sweet little jelly bean is getting tall. I still remember seeing pictures of her in a sling on mommys shoulders. Wish we were neighbours :0)
Fellow ME here. First of all thanks for all the inspiring designs; I love all your fun projects. Second, I downloaded this PDF to make these panels with my CNC for our windows on Halloween. We are having a Pirate themed party this weekend. But the PDF seems to be the more intricate one, and we'd like the cleaner one. Would you be willing to send the vectors of the cleaner version to me? Thanks!

Oh, my word, hasn't she grown?

That is a cool screen - I especially like the window section. You could carry the theme across other windows or mirrors with one of those glass-frosting sprays.

(I'm still ahead, by the way...)

This is so my style but I didn't know anything like this could really be done on such a sturdy scale. It's amazing and 'Because we can' looks amazing too - just a question though - why no tortugas?

The light and shadows compliment the room flawlessly. Well done.
