Guys, you are the BEST. Seriously, I know it’s hard sometimes to be like…yeah, your DIY sucks. But the feedback I got on my hangers was awesome and helped push me in the right direction. This is why I love the ‘Bee. I get supportive feedback and don’t feel like a complete moron for having tried and failed.
So, after my last post about the hangers went up and you saw the disaster that I was planning on giving to my friend for her wedding this weekend, I went out and purchased some stiffer wire from Lowe’s. It’s the same gauge wire (14), but it’s galvanized, which as far as I can tell makes it harder to bend and a little less shiny. Also, it didn’t dent quite so easily when I was using the pliers to bend it (and didn’t leave “teeth” marks on the wire, either).
Just as a reminder, this is what we’re starting with:
I practiced a bit with the new wire.
Practice makes perfect
I think it looks SO much better. Not perfect, not “Etsy” worthy, but considering where I was a day ago, I think it’s a win!
So, thank you bees for your help! I couldn’t have done it without you!
Anyone one else improve upon a DIY disaster?
