Cool Idea: Pant Hanger Picture Frames

I recently spotted this pant/skirt hanger picture frame idea on Ladies & Gentleman Home, and felt a pang of "why didn't I think of that?" It actually started as a budget solution for hanging prints, but evolved into something that has an art-like quality of its own. I'm not so sure that this technique would work in every home, but it certainly works wonders above this mid-century tufted sofa with the mix of screen-printed, floral, and graphic toss pillows and plaid throw picking up the colors and patterns of the prints. If you purchased some new pant hangers when I showed you how to organize your hangers, or have a few to spare, you're in luck.
You can hang your prints and photographs from the moldings, hooks, and any crannies in your home, or construct a simple shelf like this one made from strips of wood. I love how the telephone pole print mimics the shape of the shelf. What do you think?

I don't know that I really like it, actually. I think it's a little clunky-looking for my taste.
