BIG SOFT ROPE HANDLES - nautical beach dresser

I'm over the moon in love with this project. I finally got to create some big fat nautical rope handles on a set of drawers. 

It took awhile to find nice soft rope to use instead of thick 
prickly sisal that is available everywhere. I went to a tack and
 feed store, a boat store, every hardware store I could think of
 and finally just gave up. Then one day when I was not 
looking there it was right in front of me and you'll never
 guess where. 

Michael's Craft Store had it hanging in an isle 
near the floral foam and glue sticks. It's not cheap either but 
a little extra cost doesn't usually get in the way of an amazing
 transformation or when you can use a 40% off coupon.

You can grip the handle right in the middle to pull open a
 drawer or reach out with one hand on each knot to open the
 drawers, either way they glide open beautifully.


   A tutorial on how to make these handles can
be found at this link:
