An Old Railing Turned New Again.

by Mindy
We recently purchased a house that had a rather attractive railing in the front. My husband and I saw a fence at a wedding and used it as inspiration to create a usable rustic rapped post and railing
This is what we started with. Who painted them olive green anyway?
I used sisal rope and E6000 glue to wrap the post. Each post used about 50 feet of rope, plus a little more for the cap part.
We added a white poly rope as the railing, twisting it for grip and strength.
Our final product is a rustic railing and post that fits into our yard nicely.
Rope: approx $7.78 at Lowes. 100' per roll x4 rolls

E6000: approx $4.28 x2 tubes

White rope: approx $10.00 x1 roll
