What better to do on a slow Sunday than some home decorating! I had a bunch of family pictures sitting around with no frames to put them in. So by combining a few things I managed to make a fun wall arrangement.
I stole this idea from someone else's blog, and I can't for the life of me remember where. So as always, thanks to the anonymous benefactor!
First we need our supplies.
I got the drawer pulls for a buck and change at Home Depot. You need to buy some hanger bolts (the double-sided screw on the right) in place of the one-sided screw that comes with the drawer pulls. The hanger bolts will let us screw the drawer pulls to the wall.
Next we need what we're going to hang.
I have a million pants hangers from when I was in the military. The original project I saw used the wood pants hangers, which I also have, but I liked the metals ones better. The pictures I had were in the black folders they came in from the photographer, but I'm sure you could just buy some mats and tape the picture behind them.
I used push pins to decide where I wanted everything hung.
That way I didn't have huge holes after I changed my mind and moved everything around, which I did.
And then the most important ingredient:
After screwing one end of the hanger bolts into the drawer pulls, I used my muscley arms to screw them into the wall. You could drill a hole first, but when the drill is out in the storage shed, we must make do. It wasn't hard anyways.
And that's it! Hang your pictures and enjoy!
I love that I can switch them out super easy any time I want. And it's one less bare wall I have to stare at in my house. Hooray!
