Sarah Westover of Bomb Shell Bling provides a quick tutorial for a slide through baby gate created from fabric, foam, a wooden board and some staples. You have to have open balustrades on both sides of your stairs for this to work or you could adapt your wall with two simple batons to keep the board in place if you only have balustrades along one side.
