[En]Hello friends! I haven’t posted in a while, it’s been a challenge to be a mum of a new born 😀 , but today the colics are not as strong as the other days so it seems I can write a quick post about the sailor rope shelves we’ve made.

[Ro]Buna! Nu am mai scris de ceva vreme aici ceva, e o adevarata provocare sa fii o proaspata mamica :D, dar astazi colicii parca nu mai sunt asa puternici asa ca am reusit sa scriu un post scurt despre rafturile pe care le-am facut folosind sfoara groasa de iuta.

 

 

[En]I’ve seen a lot of this projects pinned on Pinterest and decided to give them a go since it matched my nautical nursery theme. At first my husband was a bit skeptical, but I managed to convince him to make this DIY project real. Said and done. In a lazy Sunday afternoon we went to a local store and bought some raw pine wood, already sanded and cut and some really thick sailor rope (jute rope). We were lucky because the length of the wood pieces matched our wall dimension and we didn’t need to cut them more.

[Ro]Am vazut o gramada de asemenea proiecte pe Pinterest si am decis sa incerc si eu, mai ales ca se potrivesc cu tema nautica din camera lui Rares. La inceput sotul meu a fost putin sceptic, dar l-am convins sa incercam. Zis si facut. Intr-o duminica dupa-masa am cumparat niste scanduri de brad gata slefuite si sfoara groasa de iuta. Am avut noroc caci lungimea bucatilor era fix cat aveam noi nevoie si nu a mai fost nevoie sa le taiem.

[En]At first my husband made the holes for the rope and then it was my turn to make them brown-ish, but still be able to see the wood fibers. Since a few years ago I had at home some water based glazing liquids. I mixed some browns and an olive green and applied several coats until I obtained want I wanted.

[Ro]Prima data a facut sotul meu gaurile pe unde urma sa intre sfoara si apoi a fost randul meu sa le fac maronii, dar sa ramana vizibila fibra lemnului. Aveam acasa niste lazuri pe baza de apa cumparate acum cativa ani asa ca am amestecat cateva nuante de maro si de verde oliv si am aplicat mai multe straturi pana am obtinut ce am vrut.

[En]I also tried to paint one of the pieces and do some dry brushing, but in the end the glazed ones looked better. Don’t you agree? 😀

[Ro]Pe una din bucatile de lemn am incercat sa o vopsesc, dar mi-a placut mai mult cum arata cele baituite. Voua nu?

[En]We were really nervous about leveling the wood boards when making the rope knots and we were almost sure we will have to do it several times, but what you know, they were perfect with the first try!

[Ro]Am avut emotii in ceea ce priveste punerea la acelasi nivel a scandurilor, parea dificil de facut tot cate 4 noduri fix la aceeasi inaltime, ca rafturile sa stea drepte. Ne gandeam ca o sa trebuiasca sa reface de mai multe ori partea asta, dar am avut noroc, a fost bine de la prima incercare!

[En]I want to make the most of these shelves while I can, because once baby Rares will stand by himself and walk, he will try for sure to climb the shelves and we will have to make them shorter or to give them up. But until then, rope shelves, I love you and you look beautiful in my home!

[Ro]Vreau sa profitam acum cat mai mult de aceste rafturi pentru ca odata ce Rares va incepe sa mearga, sigur va incerca sa se catere pe ele si va trebui sau sa le facem mai scurte sau sa renuntam de tot la ele. Dar pana atunci, arata bestial in casuta noastra.
