Oh Martha Monday - Decorating with Rope

I've been seeing a lot of rope projects around the blogosphere lately-- rope baskets, rope lampshades, rope vessels, etc.  so I knew that Martha would have a unique take on using rope to create that cool beach house look. I like that rope decor adds a subtle nautical touch without being as obvious as shells and starfish-- nothing wrong with shells and starfish, but there is a limit... right?  So getting on with it, here are a few ideas that inspire...

ugly lamp?  no problem!  love this quick fix.

hmmm... perhaps a bit too complex for my blood, but i love the look.

with a heavier base, these would make good door stoppers too

Have a wonderful week!
