How can I reuse or recycle plastic curtain tracks & hooks?

curtain-trackWe’ve had an email from Rachael, asking about:

Curtain tracks. The ones curtain hooks run along. What can I do with the hooks too? We’ve replaced the rails with poles all around the house and now have quite a lot to get rid of.

Get thee to your local Freecycle/Freegle group or charity shop immediately – chances are, there is someone new you who needs curtain paraphernalia, especially at this chilly, drafty time of year.

I also have half a memory of seeing a wardrobe project using curtain rails – used as tie racks on the inside of wardrobe doors, allowing easy flicking through the collection – but my Google-fu is failing me. Anyone?

Any other suggestions?

    I used part of an aluminum door frame to hang my grandpa’s ties when he passed away. It is above my sofa and I get compliments all the time!!

    Just hang the track horizontally then either clip ties to it or hang them over it before affixing to the wall. If you want to get fancy, you can use washers to create a gap between the wall and track so the ties can be switched out as you see fit.

  2. I think another option would be to come up with another application for them. Maybe some kind of hanging plant or wall decoration.
