How to do this project

This is how it was setup before. It looks good already, but we had to stop using the high chairs because people were touching the wall with dirty shoes. The wood is intended to look good and protect the area.

Cut to fit

We didn't have much space and tools, so improvised a tarp to collect the dust and used a hand saw to try to minimize the dust in the air.
