Rope wrapped bar stools This project is so simple and it has spectacular outcomes. All you need for this is a bar stool that you don’t necessarily like, some rope and glue sticks. First you’ll need to remove the foot rests from the stool. Then cut the legs down and use black spray paint before wrapping them in rope (this is optional). You’ll need about 3 ½ rolls of 50 foot long sisal rope for each stool. Simply spread a little hot glue on the front and back of the legs and wrap the rope around.
