My 2 year-old grandson broke the cheaply made bedrail he had, so I devised this one, made of nothing but 1" PVC and cloth mesh, which I purchased in the plumbing section at my favorite big box store!

NOTE: you may want to invest in PVC cutters, but they are not necessary. I will say that I did one bedrail with and one without the cutters, and they REALLY help! With the cutters, this project took about 15 minutes. Cutters cost about $12, the remainder of the project: $14. (March 2010)
Step 1: Materials
(2) 10' joints of 1" OD PVC (you end up with about 5' leftover, so if your supplier has shorter lengths, you may be able buy less
(4) 1" 90-degree elbows
(2) 1" "T" joints
(1) package drain mesh
NOTE: in the image, I have already cut the PVC joints into their component parts.
