I love tension rods (the kind you hang shower curtains from). I have extra and I always find a use for them.
I saw this idea on Pinterest some time back. Apparently I didn’t Pin it because I can’t find it now to give credit where due. I wish I could claim the idea was mine (because it’s great)!
Our garbage disposal died a few months back which meant cleaning out under the sink so Lance could install a new disposal. UHG!! Of course, this clever idea came to mind (I’d been meaning to get under that sink and organize to give it a try). It works GREAT!! I wish I had a before picture (OK – maybe I don’t), hanging the spray bottles makes so much extra storage.
I put my tension rod high enough that I could set other supplies under the bottles, which means I have to bend down (low) to retrieve the spray bottles, but you could always put the bar lower to save your back.
I have a small laundry room so I use a tension rod stretched across an alcove in front of some cabinets to hang clothes as I’m folding or to dry. My laundry room is on my list for a face lift. It’s kind of sterile (very WHITE), and it’s a catch all for things that don’t have another place.
I also use a tension rod in the door frame of my craft room closet as a temporary hanger for just about anything. It comes in handy for crafts that need to hang as they’re being made (braiding).
What clever ideas do you have for a tension rod?
