Super custom quilt hanger

I mentioned a while ago that I had a super custom quilt hanging system.  It was really expensive and needed professional installation.  NAH!!!!  This is it.

Two large command hooks in a finish that coordinates with your house.  I choose the bronze since, that matches the hardware in our house.  Then you need an inexpensive curtain rod and some curtain clips or other kind of clamp style hanger.  I use pants hangers from Target.
 Voila!  One very sturdy, non permanent, adjustable quilt hanging system.  I don't know about you, but I hate putting holes in the wall.  This took less than a minute to put up and no power tools were needed.
Plus, I can never hit the stud, or the stud isn't where I need it to be.  I love these command hooks.  I have some in the master bath because there aren't any towel bars.  They support wet bath sheets and my super thick floor length terry cloth robe, so I knew they would be fine with a wall hanging sized quilt.

I was hoping that the quilt might distract the eye a bit from the ginormous TV, but it doesn't.  I can't even blame Hubby for wanting such a big TV.  I was the one who said we need a bigger one.  This is our living room and the kitchen is completely open to it, no walls at all.  When I stood in the kitchen, 20 feet away, the old TV looked too small.  Maybe I just need a bigger quilt?  Yes!!  That's the solution.
