Grace your rope shelf with an interesting coastal collection as seen at Pottery Barn Kids. The shelf is no longer available. But it's a great inspirational piece.
Wouldn't this be perfect for a kitchen window? Maybe with herb pots lined up! It's made with one shelf only. You simply drill four holes, then pull knotted rope through. Knot the rope together at the top, then hang from hooks. Original source of image unknown.
You have seen this hanging rope shelf in one of the Alys Beach Homes. It looks more like a ladder. It's rustic yet comes off quite elegant with one frame on each "step" which, by the way, is driftwood. Nice!
I spotted this DIY Rope Shelf at My Home Ideas. I love that it only needs one hook, a plant hook that is.
Here's a close up. The shelves are spaced evenly, 8 inches apart, and secured with dowel pieces. In the instruction it says that once each dowel piece is in place, you can just twist it up and down for fine adjustment. So you don't have to be too scientific about the spacing.
Here is another example.
This hanging Rope Shelf is secured to the wall with L brackets and hung from eye hooks. Here the rope functions as a support structure.
And I'm loving this hanging Rope Shelf Idea for the kitchen. A clever and practical idea that reminds me of pot racks. You could, in fact, easily screw hooks into the wood to hang pots and/or large serving utensils. Have you welcomed rope into your home yet?
