Spring cleaning, spring decorating – what is it about a Bank Holiday that drives us to get organised? Whether it’s due to some atavistic nesting instinct or not, I can’t resist the urge at this time of year to shake the dust out of my home and put things back in spic and span order.
But in spite of the annual de-junking that accompanies these activities, I always seem to end up with more ‘stuff’ than I know what to do with. Which is why I love this quirky yet stylish idea of using spare coat hangers to display and organise useful and decorative items.
Part of the appeal is being able to put these together from items I already own, thus avoiding the horror of the Bank Holiday DIY run but I also love their adaptability. Whether you use a hanger to tie on your spare craft ribbons, hang tea towels, make a photo display or use it as a magazine rack, one thing’s for sure. Coat hangers are no longer just for coats.
