Nautical Organization: Easy DIY Floating Rope Shelf

Lightweight DIY Easy Hanging Rope Shelf

Hi everyone!!  It’s Emily from Table + Hearth here again from the Texas coast with a project using one of my favorite materials to work with…rope!

When we welcomed our son last year, we had to switch some rooms around to make the nursery.  Our office had to become the guest room which caused some awkward ugly clutter when we had to remove the desk so the bed would fit.

  All of our internet connections and wires now just lived on the floor in this little nook where the desk used to be and our printer and all our office supplies were just hanging out under the window.

  Real inviting and classy, right?!

That small nook where the desk used to be is only about 12″ deep so finding a new desk or cabinet that fit was proving slightly difficult as most were about 14″.

  The footboard of the bed is right in front of that space so we don’t have a lot of clearance for anything to stick out.

  any true DIYer, I eyed my ever-growing scrap wood pile and started thinking of creative ways I could organize that small space.

Watch and subscribe to the Remodelaholic channel on , please!

A few boards, some rope, and some boat cleats and we now have a super cool nautical-inspired storage shelf that makes those unattractive necessities not seem so hideous!

Nautical Floating Rope Shelf Tutorial

I used two walnut boards I had left over from another project as well as a weathered old 2×4 that our friend Hurricane Harvey left for me.  The nearby destruction from Harvey was/is absolutely horrible but if anyone was looking for old weathered boards they were in luck.  We drove around the island for weeks scouring the set out debris piles for beautiful old chippy weathered lumber to build with

All I need is a Drill? – DIY Rope Shelf

Lightweight DIY Easy Hanging Rope Shelf

Confession: until just a year ago, I used to be a total power tool phobia. The only time I touched a power tool, was to hand it to hubby.

So, when some blogger friends invited me to a power tool challenge, I was instantly intrigued.  Really, can we build furniture with just a drill, the least intimidating of all power tools? ( OK,  the lovely hardware store people will make a couple of simple cuts for us, of course!)

Easy to build and hang, this beautiful gold and turquoise DIY rope shelf is also collapsible, great for those of us who move a lot or love to rearrange furniture!

It is so rewarding and empowering to be able to build your own furniture! This was how I felt when I jumped into a 16 week wood working class and made this wall cabinet!

The rope shelf we are making today is a lot easier!

Materials and tools:

  • ropes: I wanted to use [easyazon_link identifier=”B005TL7C” locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″]1/2″ sisal rope [/easyazon_link] bu it was stock at the time, so I used [easyazon_link identifier=”B00004Z1T6″ locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″]50 feet of 1/4″ Sisal Rope, and doubled it by twisting 2 strands[/easyazon_link], so if you use 1/2″ rope, you will only need 25 feet.
  • wood shelves: each piece measures 8″ wide by 24″ long by 0,75″ thick. If you get 1×8 pine or other type of wood at the hardware store, they will cut it into 2′ section for you.
  • paints: I used acrylic paint to dye the ropes and paint the shelves.
  • It’s super easy to hang the shelf. We used [easyazon_link identifier=”B009W6I4K6″ locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″]Monkey Hook Easy Picture Hangers for Drywall, 50lb. [/easyazon_link]
  • the only tool we need is a drill! Use a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00AYZ3BQG” locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″]Spiral Flute 3/4″ Drill Bit[/easyazon_link] (prefered, as the cut is smoother) or [easyazon_link identifier=”B0001LQYGM” locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″] a 3/4″ Spade Drill Bit[/easyazon_link] which is what we had on hand

 Step 1:

Dye the rope by dipping it into a bowl of diluted yellow acrylic paint. Lay it on plastic or hang it to dry.

Sisal ropes can have lots of loose fiber hanging, so I trimmed it a bit to give a cleaner look.

 Step 2:

Here’s a easy little trick on how to drill the 4 holes on each board: cut a square piece of paper 1.5″x1.5″, line it at each of the 4 corners, and draw a dot at the other corner. This will give us the centers for the drill to start.

We used [easyazon_link identifier=”B0001LQYGM” locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″] a 3/4″ Spade Drill Bit[/easyazon_link] which is what we had, but it’s better to use a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00AYZ3BQG” locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″]Spiral Flute 3/4″ Drill Bit[/easyazon_link] because the cut is smoother.

Use some scrap wood under the board that will be drilled through to protect your work table. Sand the wood a little if needed.

Step 3:

Paint the wood with your favorite colors of acrylic paint or milk paint. I love turquoise, I also diluted the acrylic paint so the wood grains still shows a bit.

Step 4:

If you are using 1/4″ rope I did, twist 2 strands to form 1 bigger strand. They stay together quite easily. You want to end up with 2 pieces of 1/2″ thick rope, each about 12.5′ long.

I also colored a small piece of sisal rope the turquoise color for some fun details later.

Fold a piece of rope in half, start making the first 2 knots, one at about 11″ from the mid point, the other at 13″ from mid point.

Thread through the 2 holes on the top shelf, then tie a knot on the underside of each hole. Repeat on the other side.

The second and third shelf are all spaced at 12″ apart. So measure the rope and do the same knotting and threading for each shelf, keep testing and adjusting the knots if needed.

Gotta have tassels right? It’s so easy to make tassels with sisal ropes!

After the last knot, keep loosening all the twists on the ropes until you get a tassel bundle. I also added the small piece of turquoise rope for a fun accent.

There are many ways to hang the shelf. We have dry wall, so we used [easyazon_link identifier=”B009W6I4K6″ locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″]these 50lb Monkey Hook Easy Picture Hangers for Drywall. [/easyazon_link] Two of them can actually hold 100 lb!

What style should we call our rope shelf? Beachy and carefree?

Talking about carefree, this two pallet potting bench is definitely part of the group!

Or these stenciled pallet wood floor mat!

DIY Rope Hanging Shelf

Lightweight DIY Easy Hanging Rope Shelf

Hi there, this is Katie.I saw a super cute rope hanging shelf online, but I knew I could make them myself for cheaper. (My super handy husband helped too). All you need is a board, rope, and a nail to hang it from.

The boards we used are are ponderosa pine and the rope is a cotton/poly blend that we got from D&B.

Ok, you need a few other things. Sandpaper or a sander and a drill or a drill press. Also for a finished look you can either stain or paint your board. We used dark walnut Minwax stain.

I made a one for my living room and my teen daughter wanted one for her room too. She helped throughout the project. It was a great way for her to learn and we love spending time with her

Stash Your Stuff in Style With This Hanging Rope Shelf

Lightweight DIY Easy Hanging Rope Shelf

Get three pieces of wood cut at a home improvement store, or measure and mark three pieces of the 1″ x 8″ pine at 18 inches long (Image 1). Cut them using a circular saw at home (Image 2). Sand off any rough edges, as needed.

Flip all the boards upside down. Using a tape measure, mark 1 inch horizontally and vertically from each corner on all three boards (Image 1, 2). This is where the holes for the rope and the grommets will go (also called nylon spacers). These grommets will be hidden from sight but will help keep the shelves in place so you won’t have to deal with multiple knots.

Next, prepare the 1-inch spade bit with painter's tape to act as a depth guide so you don't drill too deep into the bottom side of each shelf (Image 1). You want to drill just deep enough so that each plastic grommet fits flush and is hidden from view. Tape the bit so that just 3/8″ of the tip is exposed (Image 2).

Line up the point of the spade bit with your pencil mark and drill down slowly so you don’t go too deep (Image 3). (Your bit's sharp tip will go through a little bit on the other side but that’s OK.) Repeat until all 12 holes are prepped.

Note: Once you’re done, resist the urge to stick a grommet in there at this point, as it may get stuck!

Next, flip the three boards over right side up and using the small hole as a guide (Image 1), switch out the spade bit with a regular 3/8″ drill bit and drill through (Image 2). Repeat until all 12 holes are complete (Image 3).

Once all the holes are prepped, paint the primed boards. While they’re drying, move on to the next step.

Brian Patrick Flynn, FlynnsideOut.com

Using the 1/16″ drill bit, pre-drill into each of the 12 plastic grommets (Image 1). Then, drill into that same hole using the countersink bit so that when you do add the screws later, the screws will lay flush against the side of the grommet (Image 2).

Our shelf was around 34 inches tall, so we used two 7-foot-long pieces of rope — one for the front and one for the back. You can customize to your own dimensions. Note: It’s a lot easier to thread the rope through the holes if you wrap the ends with painter's tape.

Brian Patrick Flynn, FlynnsideOut.com

Next, assemble the shelf by threading the back rope through the top shelf first, then its grommets, so that the rope and shelf is centered and hanging securely off something.

You can go ahead and hang it in place or temporarily on something so you can make adjustments easily. (We used a scrap piece of board with a screw in it.

) Next, thread the front rope through each side of the top shelf (Image 1), then its grommets (Image 2, 3) and let the front rope hang loosely for now.

It’s important to take the time to get the top shelf adjusted so that it’s the desired height with the back rope first.

Once you determine the proper height of the top shelf on the rope, drive the small #4 3/4-inch screws into each grommet slowly with a drill, pushing the screw through the back rope and into the other side of the grommet (Image 1).

Since you used the countersink bit, the screw should lay flat and the grommet will slide nicely up into the hole you drilled into the underside of the board. Repeat this step on the other side of the shelf/back rope.

Next, focus on the front ropes and getting the top shelf completely level before moving on (Image 2), driving screws into the grommet/rope, then sliding the shelf down onto the grommet so that the shelf is proper height and level. Once you get it “just so” you can measure down from this top shelf to get the lower shelves spaced correctly and level, as well (Image 3).

Once the bottom shelf is hung, tie off the ropes into a knot on either side (Image 1), then trim them with a utility knife (Image 2).

For an interesting texture, you can pull apart the ends of the ropes for a fringed look (Image 3).  Now you’re ready to hang the shelf; just be sure to use the proper hardware and anchors.

Note: If you hang the shelf in a bathroom, over time the steam will help the rope straighten out a bit.

DIY Hanging Rope Shelf with Driftwood

Lightweight DIY Easy Hanging Rope Shelf

Even I have to admit, this DIY hanging rope shelf is perfectly rustic and fun. It’s coastal style at its best: minimal, functional and natural.

If you haven’t noticed by now, we love our driftwood. We knew we wanted to incorporate it in some way into our beach themed bathroom renovation for the Spring 2017 Edition of One Room Challenge.

And at the same time, we knew we needed some additional shelving for some bathroom nick-knacks.  Off goes light bulb (ding!).

Once we found the perfect driftwood pieces in our collection, the hanging rope shelf idea came together very quickly.

The nice thing about this DIY is that you can also use regular wood planks or reclaimed wood such as barn board instead of driftwood. The same instructions apply! Did you catch our DIY barn board wood table with hairpin legs?

Materials Needed for this DIY Rope Shelf with Driftwood:

  • Driftwood (x2  pieces ranging from 15” to 20” long x 5” wide) OR similarly sized wood planks or reclaimed wood or barn board
  • Natural Coloured Jute Rope, 22mm thickness
  • 4″ Boat Cleat, galvanized finish
  • Screwdriver and large sized drill bits (is rope thickness)
  • Scissors
  • Polyurethane, clear matte spray paint

Prep Work:

  1. Dry and clean driftwood before using and sand down any rough edges.
  2. Seal all sides of the driftwood with a clear polyurethane spray paint.
  3. On the larger driftwood piece (aka “bottom shelf”), mark 2 holes on both ends as shown.
  4. On the smaller driftwood piece (aka “top shelf”), mark 1 hole centered on both ends.
  5. Using a large drill bit that measures about the same thickness as your rope, drill holes through the markings.

    The holes on the top shelf need to be larger since two strands of the rope are threaded through the single holes.

Assembly:

1. Cut 2 strands of rope to the required length. We cut each rope to 7′ long but it will depend on the finished size of your piece.

2. Wrap a piece of packing tape to the cut end of the rope to make it easier to thread rope through drilled holes.

3. Starting at the underside of the bottom shelf, thread a strand of rope through each of the holes on one side. Pull both strands of rope through until approx. 10”-15” of rope hangs freely below.  At about 10” above the holes, knot the two strands of rope together. This knot will hold the top shelf in place.

4. Thread the two strands of rope together through the larger single hole in the top shelf.

5. Pull rope over to other side of driftwood leaving long loop for hanging onto wall. Thread the two rope ends through the single hole on opposite side. Pull about 30″ of rope through and knot rope strands together to hold other side of top shelf in place.

6. Thread the single strands through holes on opposite side of bottom shelf.

7. Create a single knot under each of the 4 rope strands making sure the bottom shelf is level. You can also do this step after hanging piece to wall to make sure it’s level.

Securing to wall:

  1. Securely attach boat cleat to wall.
  2. Hang the long rope loop over the cleat to hold shelves in place.

What rustic elements do you to bring into your home decor?
