Create a beachy room divider using lengths of nautical rope attached to the ceilings, and then to a plank of wood on the floor.
Revamp your old furniture by wrapping rope around the legs of an old table or down the cord of a hanging light fixture. You could even use it to reupholster an unused chair!
Doesn’t this hanging bed look absolutely dreamy? Instead of hanging your porch swing using a linked chain, hang them with nautical rope instead!
Update the hardware on your dresser drawers to reflect your love of the beach with these rope pulls. Drill a hole through a sand dollar or a seashell for more of a beach themed accent.
Similar to the previous idea, create rope handles for a “catch all” bathroom container. Set this on your bathroom counter top to store items like cotton balls, Q-Tips, and lotions.
Fill a clear vase or apothecary jar with a length of nautical rope. This is the easiest project featured in the article, and it’s a great way to put old glass jars and vases to good use! Place these on your table tops, mantelpieces, or even on your windowsills.
Window treatments tend to be the focal point of a room, even if you didn’t plan on it! Revamp your curtains to reflect a more coastal theme by creating curtain ties from rope. You’ll love how it looks!

Use an old mug, soup can, or a mason jar to create a nautical themed pencil holder. Using hot glue to secure the rope, wrap it around the object of your choosing. If you wanted to add a pop of color (like the pink here) wrap pieces of colored string tightly around the rope prior to gluing.
Wrap rope around the chain of a hanging chandelier. Subtle details such as this tend to make a big impact in the overall scheme of your home decor.
Think outside the box when it comes to your banisters! Instead of an ordinary plank of wood, use a piece of thick nautical rope! For projects like these, thicker rope works best!
Another variation on a coastal banister! Use pieces of rope and tie downs from a boat to create your staircase railing. However, if you have children, this might be a bit dangerous if the rope isn’t sturdy enough.
Connect a matching set of picture frames to create a hanging wall decor piece. Simply use hot glue to secure the rope, and wait until it’s completely dry before hanging it up!
Bring the beach to your kitchen table with rope napkin holders. Wrap the rope around a glass bottle three times, and use hot hot glue to secure the ends together. When they’re completely dried, slide them off of the bottle, and wrap them around your napkins. Be sure to melt the ends of the rope to prevent any unwanted fraying.
