Jute Rope Handles - Easy to Make

If you like texture
 
you probably like rope, twine, and jute
 
like I do.
 
 
 
 
Here is an easy way to add that texture
 
to a furniture handle or pull.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For this round drawer pull,
 
here are step by step photos
 
of the how to.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You might have to drill two new holes in drawer
 
to lead the rope through.
 
 
 
 
Tie inside of drawer.
 
Then use a smaller twine or jute to tie around larger jute
 
to keep secure.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Trim the ends.
 
Here is the view from above.
 
 
 
 
And now your drawer has personality.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
 
Here are some other rope handles
 
that I made for these beach cabinets:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
 
You can find the detailed instruction on how to make
 
these rope handles here.
 
 
So keep this in your tool belt of furniture tricks
 
to give your old drawer or door
 
a new twist.
 
Hope you're having a great weekend,
 
Deb
