“I need to hang my damp sweaters somewhere else, than in the shower!”, she said
After showing me a few Google’d images, I decided to use a 50 year old oil painting of my cousin’s…it even has hanging laundry in her image of ‘Montreal Road’.
One finger lift while holding the bottom of the frame, slides the rack up the wall.

Thanks…not a new idea , but I wasn’t spending $40 at Walmart for a picture hanger I didn’t like, when I knew I could figure one out for myself.

I’ve not seen one of these before. It’s very cool.

Is dampness a concern at all, with respect to preservation of the art? I, personally might be tempted to somehow place some plastic discreetly behind the art on the rear portion of the frame, as a protective layer to keep evaporating water from sweaters, etc., from ruining your cousin’s painting – if you have not already, that is. Used often, that could be an insidious problem, especially if you value the painting.

Thanks for sharing this!

Thanks guys….ya, my daughter the artist has the same issue with dampness. The painting is done on an old piece of plywood, but I will keep my eye on it.
