& # 39; She wanted to make a small decorative rope bench for the entrance or for my spare room, & # 39; she wrote.

& # 39; So I decided to hack the Kmart Oak Look coffee table and use it as a base. & # 39;

To ensure that the tabletop had a firm base, two more pieces of wood were added to the center of the frame.

Subsequently, sections of rope were wrapped vertically around the structure and stapled to all four corners to create a woven effect.

The woven top was completed by horizontally braiding the cord of the wing with an effort to keep the fabric as tight as possible.

Although the end result could not have looked more professional, Mrs. Rhodes admitted that it took her a few attempts before she worked out & # 39; my fabric & # 39 ;.

The bank costs $ 70 and the end result looks just as good as design versions that are worth hundreds more
