Hangers

I've had a few ladies ask me where I get my hanging rods from - so I'm about to give away my secret!
Hardware stores usually have a section in their timber departments where short lengths of dowell can be purchased, and in different thicknesses. Try screwing wooden cupboard knobs at each end, or simply drill holes for decorative cord. I paint these with folk art paints, using crackle medium for an interesting effect. To give a Christmassy feel, use burgundy over gold. Light colours such as dusty pink over cream give a lovely shabby chic look.

'Bye for now,

P.S. Lack of Usable Space update - we are having extension plans drawn up - and we can afford a floor. I suppose it's a start!
