Painted Thrift Store Shower Curtain Hooks

Who would have ever thought that brassy little metal shower curtain hooks (found at the thrift store, of course, for only $1.00 for a pack of 8), could be so cute with a coat of paint on them?

When I pulled these babies out, along with my paints, hubby looked at me like I had two heads, “WHY would you want to paint SHOWER curtain hooks?! What’s wrong with the gold??” Um….yeah…men just don’t understand a woman’s creativity and crafting, do they?

But after I had gotten started, he must have liked what I was doing because he asked me to paint a “RASTA” flower for him, and to represent his native country of Ghana (red, yellow, green, and black). LOL. Notice I stuck it alllll the way towards the back, right? 😉 No, really, though, it turned out pretty cute, too.

The whole objective was not just to paint pretty flowers, as if I have nothing better to do with my time 🙂 What I envisioned is a dowel bar to install in my crafting room, with all my paint brushes, sewing supplies, knitting needles–you name it. And, this little turquoise bucket ($0.99–thrift store!) was perfect, along with the decorative hooks.



The inspiration for this project came from (of course!) Pinterest, but mine is much prettier, do you think?

I love these Americana paints. They’re only about $0.99 from Hobby Lobby. Of course I have all the colors 🙂



Now, as for durability…..These paints definitely need some protective coating on them, because they do seem to chip a little bit. A polyurethane spray will do the job!


So what do you think? Have you ever thought about painting shower curtain hooks? I bet you think of those little brassy things a little differently next time you see a bunch! 😉 Leave a comment below and add to the conversation!
