Take a look at free standing privacy screens from Amazon, see if anything can work for you:
Go to Wayfair.com and purchase outdoor privacy screens. They have all kinds of styles that might be suitable for you, and you can move them around.
I would get a piece of 2"x2"x6' wood at Lowe's or Home Depot and attach it the corner post of your deck. Then you can add curtain brackets-one to the wood extension and the other to the corner of your house. Then hang a curtain rod and curtain. You could paint the wood the same as you deck railing. You would be able to pull the curtain back to the house when you don't need the privacy. Not sure I have written this plainly enough but it shouldn't be too expensive to do and I think would look nice.
Great idea! You could even use a drop cloth as the curtain.
You might also use grey or heavy duty "dog proof screen" window screen fabric, tied to the rails. It will give ventilation, but also rinses off, flexible, all weather, and might do it for you... OR Spray paint white for brighter, less enclosed effect.
If you just want to cover the existing railing, get solar screen and you can staple it to the railing. If not have lowes or Home Depot cut you a couple 2x4 boards. and make a curtain out of drop cloths or even shower curtains.
Good idea to get the lumber cut at the store if you do not have adequate tools to do it at home. You will need sturdy hardware however to attach it to the existing posts, which will require some tools so that it is anchored down enough to be windproof.
Use 4 x 8 white lattice panels. lay them sideways and zip tie to the existing railing. 4 ' will give you privacy when youre sitting down and it wont feel so closed in.
You can zip tie electrical conduit to the corner post, then zip tie one to one of the posts on the right. Zip tie an electrical conduit across the two upright ones. Hang some curtains with circle hooks so you can pull the curtain to the corner post when you don't need it. No tools needed.
You can buy Privacy screening - fabric or lattice or Brushwood or Bamboo, or fix a frame to your existing fence panels and hang a roller blind.
