deck baluster

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.

Advice on making exterior more appealing.

I am in the process of renovating my house.  I have redone the porch with pvc balusters and columns but it still needs something and I don't know what it is.  Maybe the porch needs painted a different color or maybe shutters.  Im just not sure.  Anybody got any advice?

Loft Winch for Fun

Hi, I want to make a fun lifting mechanism which I can use to raise critical beverages, light office supplies, etc., to the loft in our house, where my office is.  It could be manual or motor driven.  It can brace, lean against or grip the square handrail and square balusters,  but can't mar or be screwed into any woodwork or flooring.  Ideas?
