DIY // macramé cafe lights for your patio or deck

Twisted macramé rope and antiqued bells dress up simple cafe lights for a cool, boho look.

Let’s just get one thing out of the way, shall we? Cords are ugly. There’s a reason professional stylists Photoshop them out of shots — because they can muck up a perfectly pretty picture with in-your-face utilitarianism that feels anything but chic.

That’s why I was so thrilled with Joanna came to me with an idea to dress up some plain cafe lights for her patio. By using a simple macramé knot (which absolutely anyone can master) and some antiqued golden bells for a little extra oomph, we created charming cafe lights that look like a bohemian masterpiece. So grab some cotton cording, park yourself in front of your favorite show to binge watch (this project takes some time to complete) and get knotting!

Renovating a house is a funny thing… you start one room and in the midst of that project, you start to cast an editing eye around to the other rooms. Or at least that’s the trap I keep falling into! Lately I’ve been feeling like the living room needed a bit of a refresh, especially since I haven’t changed that room much in almost a year. One major change we made recently was to get an IKEA couch and then increase the drama with a new slipcover from Bemz; the effect is quite dramatic, but also very livable and comfy!
