Let's make DIY Rustic Hanging Rope Shelf


Preparing the shelf: Start by prepping your wood. The 2 pieces of plywood that you use should be equal in size. You can cut them down yourself with a table saw or have them cut down for you at the hardware store.

Attach wood: Stack the two pieces of wood on top of each other and use your clamps to clamp them together.


Make holes: Once you have clamped your wood into place, use your drill with a drill bit large enough to accommodate the width of the rope that you are using to make a hole in each corner.


Painting process:  Once your holes are finished, paint the edges of the wood a bright and fun color. This part is totally optional and you can get creative here.


Cutting the rope: Next cut 4 pieces of rope equal size. This measurement will depend on your ceiling height and how far apart you want the shelves so determine this first before cutting.
