Materials and Tools

  • Drill
  • Drill bit
  • Clamps
  • Scissors (heavy-duty)
  • Rope (thick)
  • Paint and paintbrush
  • Two pieces of triangular wood (desired measurements)

Prepping the wood

Once you have cut your pieces of wood for the shelves, you will need to prep them. Ensure the pieces are equal in size. If the sides are rough, sand them. Sanding will make them fair and appealing.

Attaching the wood

Place the two kinds of wood on top of each other. Clamp them together using your clamps. Clamping will help you drill the holes uniformly on both planks of wood.

Drilling holes

Drilling holes

Once the pieces are stack, use your drill to make holes on the three sides. Your drill should be a bit large. This will help accommodate the width of your rope.

It may be hard to drill on both pieces at a go. If so, you can drill each part separately. But, ensure you measure them keenly. This process is to ensure that your shelves are balanced and in line with each other.


After finishing to drill the holes, you will need to paint the woods. Use a bright and fun color of your choice. You will have to consider your décor before painting. However, the color is purely up to you to decide. You can either choose to leave them bare or just paint the edges. Any, as I said, the choice is yours.

Cutting your rope

Cutting your rope

First, determine the far you want to tie your shelf from. Then, you will need to cut your rope into three equal pieces. Though, you will need to give the strings an allowance. This allowance will help cover the space you will use for knotting and hanging down.

The longer your rope, the better. The reason being, if it is too long, you can cut it down. But if shorter, you will not add any other slack.


assembling rope shelf

You will have to tie a knot at the bottom of each rope. Thread each yarn in the holes from the bottom of the pieces of wood. Space the knots evenly; this will ensure that your shelf is straight and well balanced.

Tying the knot

Finally, after you have assembled your wood, use the remaining rope at the top to tie a knot. You can then hang it on your corner. You can use your desired hooks to hang the rope. Ensure the hooks are strong and sturdy enough to hold the shelf’s weight and other stuff that you will place on it.


Finally, you can store your desired items to display them. Sit, look, and enjoy your creativity. You did it!

In conclusion, the DIY corner rope shelf is an excellent hack. You can choose either of the above ideas and give your room a more gorgeous and cheerful look.
