I wanted to give these hangers an upgrade again. Maybe a little pop of color? Just for fun? So I did. And I turned it into a little organization tutorial in case you want to give your hangers a mini makeover.
- wood hangers - coarse sandpaper - dye - paint brush - sealant - wooden beads
First, you’ll need to remove the finish or sealant on the hangers with sandpaper. If you’re using unfinished wood hangers, you can skip this step.
Wipe off all of the dust with a cloth after the entire hanger has been sandpapered.
Then, pour some dye into a small bowl with a teeny bit of water (just enough to dilute the color ever so slightly) and use the dye as you would paint. Dip your brush in and start painting the wood.
Wait for the dye to completely dry, then add one to two coats of sealant to seal in the color so it doesn’t rub off on your clothes.
Then, thread a bead through the metal part of the hanger, and it’s ready to use. You can add a bead of glue to the inside of the bead if you want the bead to be secure.
You could also try this project with acrylic paint instead of dye for a different look. Or skip the painting all together and just add beads to the top of each hanger hook for a little DIY flair.
