A big question for photographers is always...what do I do with my finished work?

A big question for photographers is always...what do I do with my finished work?

If you are like me, I constantly love to change my photos out. I also love to mix vintage with modern. I was at thrift store the other day and noticed a bag of wooden hangers for $1.99. I noticed a gem in there with a true vintage wooden hanger. I bought the bag and headed off to a craft store to find some binder clips with modern patterns. I found 6 of them for only $2.00. It was easy to clip the image to the hanger by just opening the clip. Be warned though, this will leave a dimple in your picture. Pictures that work best for most of these regular hangers are 11x14s or 12x12s are excellent too.

If you don’t have the time to scour antique or thrift stores for vintage hangers, that’s ok. If you still want the look, you kind find these pant hangers everywhere. I love the mixture of the wood with the steel. If you really want to get creative, you can stain the hangers to your shade of choice. I actually liked this shade. These hangers are a bit smaller than regular hangers so I used an 8×8 square print leaving an inch on each side. Again, be warned this will probably leave a dimple on your print as the hanger is putting direct pressure on the image. If you are worried about the image curling at the bottom, you can tape some coins to the back to anchor it.

As far as hanging them, they are very light weight so all you need is a finishing nail.
