Painted Hangers

This is what I have been working on these past few days. I am always on the look out for things to paint.  If you follow my blog, you’ve probably noticed, I’m always jumping from one project to another. I had these plain old coat hangers which were just perfect for a makeover. First I sanded them just a little to take away the sheen. Then I gave them a few  coats of paint before painting on the flowers. I then finished them off with a sealer.

I just hung them up on this pole to get a picture of them. I’m in the process of doing a bit of sorting out and it feels so good to clear some space. Now when I buy new clothes I will have pretty hangers to hang them up.

These hangers turned out so pretty, I’m tempted to hang a few in the bathroom or bedroom. I think they would be lovely hanging on  a rail with a shelf above. I can just picture them with a little girls party dress, a prom dress or even a wedding dress.

Here’s another pic a little closer up.

Why not give it a go, its cheap, easy and quick. A perfect project for using up leftover paint or you could buy the little tester pots. You could skip the painting stage by buying hangers already painted.  If you didn’t want to paint the flowers, you could always use the decoupage method of gluing them on.

    I love these! Though I do have to ask a stupid question. Do you hang clothes on these? I would want everyone to see them and wouldn’t do that! Marcey
