Just an FYI, Acrylic Latex spray paint will stick to galvanized hangers (non-stainless), then any other paint will stick to the Acrylic Latex.


I've tried latex primers a few times. Seems to peel off easily. Can kinda work.

Easy for me now as I just buy stainless...

As stated above, bring a brush, not a can of spray paint. Overspray really looks bad.

Actually... just bring a template.. ours is made form the cardboard of a sierra nevada 12 pack of cans, made a little cut in it the same shape as the hanger WALA! Perfect painted hangers everytime! That photo above is messed up... at the very least TRY to match the paint to the wall color - it almost looks as though the person was like well fine if I have to paint my hangers then im gonna do a shit job on purpose.

The route in it's entirety.

Steven if you need a partner for the fall I'd be glad to help you out.

The latex primer doesn't work all that well. Just use the plain old Latex Spray Paint and skip the primer. The H2O Krylon works well. I've used it on both PS and SS and it sticks better than anything else I've tried. Key is to give it plenty of time to cure and harden.

This is the stuff we use and it's great - it does chip a little though.
