PAM (Painter Artist Mom) shared a few extras from her stash of padded hangers HBD (Handy Builder Dad) made for her.
His creation is the perfect solution to my disarray in hanging table-cloths. This was my storage closet before.
It’s very easy and quick to make these padded hangers with pipe insulation.
You want the insulation to extend beyond the hanger by a half an inch at each end.
Snip a half an inch into each end of the insulation tube at the opposite side from the slit opening.
Feed hanger through the opening, fitting each end into the snips you cut at the tube ends.
Remove the taping that covers the adhesive.
Fit it together.
This works with pipe insulation that has a half an inch to one inch opening. You can make these padded hangers with foam or rubber pipe insulation.
I prefer the foam since it holds the cloth more securely.
Repeat until you make all the padded hangers you need for your linen storage.
On my next trip to a home improvement store, more pipe insulation is on my list!
While I was on an organization mission last week, I pressed, folded, and organized my cloth napkins into the dresser I transformed for the kitchen.
All the napkins, place mats, and tea towels are now stored in the dresser drawers with wallpapered sides.
I also cleaned out my closet. After hauling three large trash bags filled with clothes to Salvation Army, why is my closet still full?
Have you been organizing lately? Could you use some quick and easy padded hangers?
