PB Monkey's Fist

I recently came across a post at Meridian Road, where she knocked off this Pottery Barn monkey's fist nautical decor:

I thought it was so neat, and it would give a beautiful natural element to my new living room.

After watching the YouTube video on her post two seven times, I gave it a whirl.

After my 3rd 4th attempt at it, I finally had my monkey's fist knot.

Having 3 brothers in Boy Scouts had finally paid off ;)

And I just so happen to have a lovely ladder to put it on.

This ladder was one of the few things the old owners left behind. It is wood and VERY heavy. I made it into a plant stand only about a month after we moved in.

I love it!

And yet I will never do it again, because making that thing was one big pain in the ass!

Project cost = free!
I have tons of miscellaneous rope around the house.

Stick around for more free/low cost projects, recipes, ideas, and more!


  1. love it. you're new projects are fitting into my budget, love that too!

  2. it turned out great! I need one! Hey I love your ladder plant stand, too cool! Keeping ya'll in my prayers!

  3. It is absolutely a huge pain in the ass!

    But, it is easier the second time.

  4. Love this! I am going to make one. Looks great displayed on your ladder.
    Thanks for sharing.


  5. Good post and this post helped me alot in my college assignement. Thanks you on your information.
