Marc was with me on this trip and after hearing my original plan on how I was going to secure the rope (which I don't even remember anymore:)) he suggested I use crimp sleeves.
I think getting the knots even was the trickiest part of all! Make sure knots are as TIGHT as you can get them.
I put a little tape at the end of the rope to help it fit through the drawer hole easier as well as the crimp sleeve slide on nicely.
I promise, if you squeeze the crimp hard enough, they are not going anywhere! As a matter of fact, you will need to cut them with a razor blade (careful!) to remove.
