Easy Custom DIY Baby/Pet Gate


It was time for me to admit my house needed to be baby proofed, including installing gates on the top and bottom of the steps. The gate needed to be easily opened by my other kids, self-closing and auto-latching. I also wanted it to be prettier than you average plastic baby gate. The obvious answer? DIY it! Using less than $50 in supplies, I was able to create a custom baby gate which blends perfectly with the rest of the decor in my house, and is super functional.

    I love this gate for my 2 and 4 legged babies. The instructions don't say anything about the trim pieces on the top and bottom. How is this finished off
