Ballard Rope Spool Table Knock Off

Ready for a cool nautical table knock off?

Do you remember Ballard's rope spool table from My List of Nautical Luxury Decor Items? When Dana of Crafted Niche saw this Ballard design she knew she had to try to make one.

So she snagged a spool for $5 from Habitat Restore and hauled it home.

After sanding and coating her spool with Minwax Special Walnut and water-based polycrylic, she stapled on the rope.

And here it is, Dana's Ballard Inspired Rope Spool Table. A nod to Life at Sea! For all the details, visit Dana.

Darn! I've never seen a spool like that at my Habitat Restore or I'd make one in a heartbeat!

I've been avoiding coffee tables for fear of clutter, but now I might have to make one of these. Its functional, decorative and original. Thanks so much for sharing!
