I gotta admit, I’d never thought of using rope for decorating. I’ve never been a ‘beachy’ gal and I’m just old enough where rope + decorating brings to mind macrame. I wasn’t fond of it in the ‘70’s and I don’t think I’d like it much better today.
But a couple of blogger friends have recently changed my mind. First I saw Traci’s rope roundup (pardon the pun) on Beneath My Heart.
By the way, Traci hosts an awesome link party each month with some great projects. Drop by and link up your best project!
Then I dropped by Infarrantly Creative and was thrilled to see that Kim of Sand and Sisal is now a contributor! What an awesome addition to an already fabulous blog. Kim’s first project? A sisal lampshade, of course! With a full tutorial.
Traci’s & Beckie’s posts got me to thinking about rope in decorating. I love the organic look it brings to a room.
It adds a neutral color without being boring.
It can be used for function, as well as style.
Rope can bring a bit of a rustic vibe.
