Trouser Hanger Picture Hook

Abbis room is a strange shape.  She is up in the eaves of our old Victorian London house – most of the ceiling and walls are sloping, which makes for a great quirky space, but its also difficult to hang pictures.

She is a girl after my own heart, who likes to ring the changes in terms of decor, so I made this trouser hanger picture hook, so she could easily change up the pictures on the wall, without using blue tac or pins.

Materials needed:

  • Trouser hanger (these can be found on Amazon)
  • Sandpaper
  • Paint

 

First sand down the hanger with fine sandpaper to remove all the varnish.IMG_4490I’m painting mine in neon red.  I find you need a good base of white when using these colours, to get a decent coverage on the final coat.IMG_4491 I’m only painting the outer edge and the rim, as the inside has a soft felt strip that protects the trousers (and your picture).IMG_4494 This is my neon red.  Regular visitors to this site will know I’m slightly obsessed with neon colours for Abbis room.IMG_4497 Then as a contrast, I’ve painted the ridges in black.IMG_4499 Simply sandwich the picture between the leaves.  Abbi is hanging this poster of her former classmates that I made here for now, but it will be easy for her to change it to anything.IMG_4504She has already requested a couple of posters!

This would be a great way to display children’s artwork.  You could paint each childs name on the hooks, so they can choose their own favourite piece to be displayed. Its also a great way to hang pictures in a rental property, when you’ve got one eye firmly on getting your deposit back!
