Still painting…and a different use for clothes hangers – Day 209

Work is going well on my Windows of Community painting and I should have it done on time! I find I make better progress when I force myself to work quickly and not think too much about the detail.

I’m also still working on cleaning out the closets in the house so I thought it was appropriate that I saw this neat sculpture made from IKEA clothes hangers.

What do you do with a bunch of extra hangers hanging in your closet? Well Portuguese designers Diogo Agular and Teresa Otta of LIKEarchitects had a brilliant idea. They took 2,000 colorful IKEA children’s hangers and designed this Chromatic Screen for the 2012 Oporto Show, an event known as the most prestigious event for interior design and architecture on the Iberian Peninsula.
