DIY: Knotted rope headboard

DIY + How To

Loving the eagle eyes behind Poppytalk blog for spotting this awesome headboard in the April issue of Real Living. They’re totally right; this has oodles of DIY potential to it. It looks like they just took a simple wood frame, drilled some holes around the edges, and then used rope to create a random criss cross pattern. Isn’t that just grand? We could see this duplicated with something smaller and thinner like yarn, string or twine and definitely see used with a myriad of colors. Love it! See a close up at Poppytalk.

Would you try this headboard DIY idea?

    Would never build this – a baby could get caught up in the web and get strangled. Very dangerous!!

      Well one would hope it would be in a non-kid home! But good point.
