Fronkey? Repurposing an old clothes hangerJune 28th, 2009 in member junk
I stopped at a local Goodwill and came across this cholthes hanger, of metal frogs. I thought they would look good painted and put in the garden somehow. When I checked out, the girl said
"How cute, Monkeys? " I told her they were frogs, but of course she was looking at them from a different angle right? When I got home I showed my husband, explaining how I thought it would make a nice addtional to the garden. Showing him the metal hanger; he said "Monkey's"?
I'm not sure where these monkeys come in, I said they are frogs. Who would have thought now we call them Fronkeys since everyone sees one or the other. Cleaned and painted with metal paint. I havent decided about how to hang them yet in the garden. I could mount on a fence or add a pole or if I should leave the hanger parts on or not?
PS Excited to finally share a project with such a talented group. I always like the inpirations you all share.
