DIY : gold plastic hangers

I’ve been working on some great creative shoots the past few days that I can’t wait to share with you! But until then, this mini gold hanger DIY that I did on set seemed to be a hit on my¬†Instagram so I thought I would share. The truth is that I didn’t have the time or cash to buy a bunch of matching hangers BUT I did have a can of gold spray paint. I went through a faze earlier this summer where I wanted to paint everything gold. I got a little fix today playing Midas and spray painted these mis-matched cheap plastic hangers gold and what a difference!
Don’t they look so much better!? Let’s hear it for plastic gold hangers.

    I love this idea. I have seperated all the plastic hangers to throw away in these days. Luckily, I haven’t thrown them yet. I was planning to change them with wooden ones since all of them are in different colors. I don’t have to buy new ones. Thank your for this great idea sharing.

    Does the gold rub off with wear and tear?

    Kelly asked if the gold rubbed off I’m curious if it has or not

      Hi Angelica, some of the gold has come off. I sprayed them very quickly. My guess is that if you do a few coats and let them dry in between that it would resolve the issue.

      They do sell spray paint made for painting plastic; Krylon Fusion, Liquitex Professional, to name a couple. I have used Krylon Fusion before and it worked well but never on anything handled as much as hangers. It’s worth a try though because this is a great idea! Hopefully it comes in gold!
