Spotlight: Pant Hanger Wall Art

Yea, pants hangers! Some people are so friggin' clever, I love it.  I stumbled across this beautiful DIY project from Ladies & Gentleman that creates a gallery wall effect that is extremely easy (and easy on your walls!) to rotate art in and out of.  I love the idea of keeping a ton of holes out of the walls, and using the vintage wooden hangers adds a lot of character. Imagine, you could even paint them fun colors for a twist:
Adorable.  Clean, and both vintage & modern.  I love this style.  The grid system itself is genius, and as you're about to see, is easily re-arranged for an entirely different look. I love how the simple addition of shelves here changes everything.

Landlords would love their tenants to do this!  I'm notorious for changing around the wall art on a whim, so you can imagine the holes I've left behind... oops! It's in the name of interior decor, what choice did I have?  I have an ever-growing stock pile of wall art, so the ability to rotate only a few (vs. cramming them all over the place) is priceless.  I must find a wall to do this on, hmm.....maybe downstairs.

So - while trying to find the original source for this, I happened to stumble across another blog, Dream Green DIY, that tried this project for themselves and wrote up a fantastic step by step tutorial.  Check it out here: Dream Green DIY.

Pants Hangers, that's great - it's so interesting to see the things people come up with for something you imagined only had one use.  What other things are you people re-purposing out there?? Share!

Oh, am I the only one completely in love with that couch? Hell-O! So retro...

That's all for today, the weekend is calling!

  4. J.S. Hanger Deluxe Wooden Pants Hangers from Bizarkdeal

    these hangers are absolutely the best i have gotten. i love the wood and the metal clasp on them , it has made it so easy for me to hang all my slacks and the jeans and keep them nice and neat. the hangers are very lightweight and they are not bulky like i have come to find with others i have purchased so you are able to use more of them and save lots of room in your closet. i like to usually air dry my jeans and with the wooden hangers they can hold the weight of damp jeans and keep them firmly grasped to where you will not have them slipping and falling to the floor and you having to launder them again. the metal hooks on the top of the hangers also will not bend allowing you to hang your garments and the hangers breaking and you having to purchase even more . they will save you a bunch of money because they are very durable and if you have clothing of different sizes the awesome metal grasp freely move on the rod allowing you to find the perfect fit for your garments. they will not become dirty but if so you can simply wipe them down, and the wood on the hangers will not break or wear out. i use these not just for pants but skirts and i have found they are perfect for all my scarfs . these are the best .
