We love wooden hangers because we love our clothes and think they should be treated nicely. No bent-out-of-shape sweaters on wire hangers welcome over here. Wood hangers can be decidedly slick though, so we busted out some Plasti-dip to make them a little grippier.
It’s super easy to do: Tape off your painting boundaries, custom mix your color in the Plasti-dip (we used the blue, yellow and white tints), bathe your hanger in Plasti-dip and hang (over newspaper or something else that can get dirty to catch errant drips). About three minutes after you’ve finished applying, remove the tape; otherwise you could yank the Plasti-dip off with it.
There’s enough Plasti-dip in the container to paint several wardrobes worth of hangers. Other ideas: dip the handles of your tools or cosmetic brushes; dip the key-ring end of of your keys; paint along the edge of baskets.
