Hi Friends! Today is the September Create & Share Challenge.. The theme for September is ROPE. Yep…..that is correct, ROPE. Any kind of rope.
14 DIY Bloggers took the challenge. I am so excited to see what each blogger thinks up. Our host and founder of the Create & Share Challenge Blog Hops is Stephanie of Casa Watkins Living and Co-Host Cat of Pocketful of Posies. A big thank you to these two lovely ladies.
Are you ready to see what each blogger created with ROPE? Are you ready for lots of inspiration?
Let’s do it…..
I had this green bar stool that I got at an estate sale for $3. It has been sitting in my attic for 10 months or so. LOL I didn’t want to rush into anything. Ha!
Here is what you will need:
Paint (if you want to paint your stool)
I used white linen chalked paint for the bar stool.
After the two coats of the chalk paint dried over night, I sealed the wood with matte water based polyurethane
Rope it in
Rope and Titebond II
It took all of the 50 ft rope to cover the seat of the stool with only 4 inches left over.
My stool had a 12″ stool seat.
Starting the Rope
Measure and mark the center of your stool seat. Start the rope by putting a nail in the center of the stool.
Add a layer of Titebond II.
Tightly wrap rope end around the nail, and continue wrapping rope around the beginning rope.
One thing to note: Titebond II dries yellow, so be careful to keep it on the bottom of the rope. Continue adding glue and wrapping rope around itself.
I did a section and then waited to let it dry and then did another section.
This gives you a tight neat finish.
There you have it. All Finished….I love the new fresh look.
