The associates there will cut the rope into however many lengths you want in any size, and you can purchase it by the foot. I simply measured from the ceiling down to where I wanted the shelf to hang–then I multiplied that by two (since I’m sort of doubling the rope on each side) and added about 18 inches extra to compensate for making two knots–one on the end of each length of rope.
So, if your ceilings are 8 feet high and you want your shelf to hang at around 4 feet off the ground, then you would buy two sections of rope that are each about 9½ feet long.
We have lots of old wood around our property, but you can purchase newwood planksand have them cut to size at The Home Depot.
Imeasuredthe distance between the holes I drilled on each side of the wood plank and thenmarkedthose out on the ceiling.
Then I screwed ascrew eye hookinto our wood ceiling in the two places I had marked off.
If you have a different type of ceiling, an associate at your Home Depot store will be happy to help you choose the best hanging method.
Run the rope through the screw eye hook until there are equal lengths on either side.
Then, just tie knots on all four corners underneath your piece of wood to secure it.
I had to adjust one of the corners a few times to make it all level but the rope was easy to manipulate. It was easy to make small tweaks so it would all hang correctly. I love how some of the rope ‘tails’ are longer than others.
Once I was done, I grabbed my trustyMr. Clean Magic Eraserand rubbed out any scuff marks that the wood made on the wall as I was hanging it.
Funny story about Mr. Clean Magic Erasers–my mom tried to use them and told me she didn’t know why everyone loved them so much because they never worked for her. So the next time I was at her house I tried them at her place and they worked great. Mom quietly uttered “ohhhhhhh” while she watched. She didn’t realize they had to be damp to work. Public service announcement: be sure your Magic Erasers are wet!
Such a sweet little hanging rope shelf that instantly makes a new (or old) place feel like home.
