This is the results of a friends project.  They have a lovely stylish home with unique addition on the back.  One of its features was an open reclaimed wood staircase.  It looks great but with a new member of the family (and a toddler too) they needed to temporarily childproof the gaps and railings.  

They came to me with detailed drawings and sizes and we cut them all to size.  Then they drilled the mounting holes when at home to make sure they worked and secured it all with screws or zip ties.  I think it looks awesome, or rather it looks like nothing (It took me about half an hour before I noticed it - and I am much more sensitive to clear plastic than most!).

We do similar less elaborate projects all the time for builders that need to meet code on custom railings (no more than a 4" gap) but where the owners may want to remove it later for aesthetics (nudge nudge wink wink).

We did a similar thing at our last house, unfortunately this is the only picture I can find.  We did this style of doors and some bookshelves.  The acrylic goes up about halfway and it is just held in by some little nails on the edges.
