Rope can serve many practical purposes, but did you know that it can also be used as a decorative accent? If you wish to create a rustic or nautical style for your interior design, consider using rope to enhance the look.
Here are five DIY ideas to get you inspired.
Create a frame for your mirror
If you have a mirror that looks a little plain, use rope to create an eye-catching frame. Simply cut out cardboard in the shape of your mirror and use a glue gun to attach the rope to the cardboard. Then attach the cardboard to the mirror.
Design stylish storage
Transform your unattractive storage boxes with rope covering the outside to keep a clean space without sacrificing style. This way, your storage solutions can serve both a practical and decorative purpose.
