The last step is to thread the rope through each board, on both sides, one at a time. Measure out a length of rope for each side of the boards – keep in mind how much vertical space you’ll need between layers. We used about 12 inches of clearance per layer with 3 layers in total.
Remember to include a little extra length, since you’ll be tying knots to secure the boards along the rope.
Start with the top layer. Tie a small knot below the board, under each hole, to prevent it from sliding down. Repeat with each layer.
At the top, secure the rope to the hook for your hanging rack. We drilled two holes in the wall to suit a J-hook, but there are other methods of attaching the rack if you don’t want to drill into your wall.
