one of your links is broken, but for instructions on tying the basic knot, check out the International Guild of Knot Tyers for a 'turkshead knot' and look for the ones that lay flat. (the IGKT has been mentioned on Apartment Therapy elsewhere)

Nautical Knotted Rope Rug: Perfect As A Bath Mat!

Those beds are AWESOME. But before replicating the rope railing in the staircase, check with local building codes. I made the mistake of installing one to find out that they are not permitted as a primary rail because they are too flexible. There needed to be a rigid rail that the rope could accent.. just a public service announcement.. but they do look AWESOME. If you do make one, look up a 'manrope knot' as a finish to the end for a true maritime fit and finish.

I'm a member of the International Guild of Knot Tyers. They have GREAT resources. You could also look for 'Animated Knots' to see instructions to tie this and other decorative knots. Even a well placed bowline or cleat could add a nautical accent to finish a room.

nice pieces. I've enjoyed looking at the local marine consignment shop for decorative elements that have the aged patina.

Wow, the hot glue trick makes those dead simple. For a more authentic approach, you can find upholstery needles at your craft store and stitch the layers together, but for the time investment, your glue technique looks just as good; just keep them away from steam radiators, the stove, or anywhere else you are concerned about re-melting the glue.
