Out-of-the-way paintbrush storage Hang brushes on a rod or wire 1 of 1 Hang brushes on a rod or wire Hang your paintbrushes out of harm's way by installing a couple of screw eyes or cup hooks on the bottom of a couple of rafters or floor joists. Then thread the brush handles through a stiff wire (or welding rod) and hang it all up.
I've made it from of "stuff" I've collected over the years. The face is one of my old shovels with green glass eyes and old welding rod for whiskers. The cat's body is an old auto coil spring. For the legs I got out the forge and tapered some round stock and then coiled the ends. The cat measures (approximately) 22 inches long, and is 21 inches high to the top of the tail, it is 14 inches wide at the whiskers. The body is 11 inches high and 6 inches wide. The face is 12 X 7 inches.
