1930's coat hangers

hanger a

Last Thursday, I finally did something I'd been meaning to do for ages – I hammered in some nails and pins, and put lovely vintage hangers on my walls. I had put this off for so long because I wanted to paint the walls first, but as choosing the colour is going to take me an age and a bit, I decided to carpe diem and get them up. Even if it is a (probably long-ish term) temporary measure, it looks so much better than bare walls, and I just really like them.

I bought these 1930's hangers a couple of weeks ago, and they are so pretty in themselves I am happy to put them up on the wall, and hanging some vintage goodies from them makes my front room feel... well, just so much nicer, really. Sometimes it really is worth doing the small things too.

Gorgeous hangers. The walls look lovely. I've got a couple of things I want hanging up on my wall - nothing quite so pretty. One's a t-shirt I wore as a child of Mickey Mouse dressed as a sailor. Hehe.

OK. Not sure if my first comment worked. But I said that the hangers were gorgeous and the wall looks lovely. I've got some things I've been meaning to hang up but they're not so pretty. One is a t-shirt I wore as a child of Mickey Mouse dressed as a sailor.

Those hangers are absolutely gorgeous! Your pics make me wish I'd appreciated the silky, padded hangers in my nana's wardrobe a little more when I was younger.

that's a lovely idea - I need some indulgent coat hangers me thinks, for my special dresses anyway! Great idea for a feature wall x

Those little beauties are gorgeous!

I've always loved old hangers like that, my parents used to have a couple of them, I remember. It's sad that we're willing to sacrifice the aesthetics of objects in order to have large amounts of them.

That is one fluffy cat - wow! :)

You're blog is adorable. Do you use a remote to take these pictures or does someone else do them?

Hannah said...

I agree entirely. I don't have such pretty hangers to hang them on, but I've got some vintage dresses hanging about my room, and I think they just add about a zillion times more character.

SO FLUFFY! omg! Such a cute kitteh. ;-)

The hangers on the walls is a really great idea. Might consider it somewhere in our place. We've recently been reorganising and putting more art up on the walls. The bf has hung up some skateboards so I reckon I can justify some dresses ehehehe.

The coat hangers are beautiful! Reminds me of coat hangers my Aunt used to make for my sister and I as children. Not as delicate though ;) Hello babycat you sweet perfect little cattage.

The hangers looks fabulous and perfect to hang anything on it. It even adds beauty to the clothes hang to it.
