DIY: Wall Decor…”Knot” Your Typical Shelf

So…as you can see this pregger mama has been quite busy with all sorts of DIY projects that will complete the room being shared by kiddo #1 and kiddo #2. This project was quick and easy, plus it turned out really cute and was theme-appropriate for my lil’ surfer boys.

I was inspired by the adorable Swing Shelf from Pottery Barn Kids (no longer available…bummer dude!). So, what’s a girl to do? I had to make it!!

Here is the Pottery Barn Kids version ($69.00):


 Here is the Rebecca version ($12.00):

Pretty cool, eh? Here is a list of what you need to make your very own!

Materials:
(1) 27″ x 7″ Prefinished Laminate shelf (Home Depot)
(2) Small Drawer Pulls
(8) Drywall anchors and screws
Jute Rope – cut to preferred length
Drill, Hammer, Screw Driver, Level

Drill four holes—one in each corner, offset approximately 1 inch.

Measure the distance between the drilled holes on the shelf,  and mark that distance on the wall once you decide on the height of your shelf. Now, secure the drawer pulls to the wall using drywall anchors and screws.


Feed the rope through the holes in the shelf closest to the wall and knot.

Run the rope up and over the drawer pulls, feed through the front holes, level and knot. That’s it! Now it’s time to accessorize! I made and framed a subway art print and some basic printed images that coordinated with the room’s decor.


So, in a few easy steps, not a lot of moola and a little accessorizing, you too can recreate this “knot” so ordinary shelf!

    The one from Pottery Barn is the same as the one from Rebecca. But look at the price difference! It’s really best to just make it by ourselves. Thanks for the tutorial!

    I love it! So glad I came across this. I actually saw it on PBK, and thought, “I can do that”. I have the perfect board, and the rope. The one thing we were struggling with was the hardware. I’ll have to check out the drawer pulls!
