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 overnight, 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.
