I would suggest using quilt hangers. There are several different styles and types with various price points but relatively inexpensive ones are available (certainly cheaper than $1000) and, the best thing about them is, you can hang your textile without puncturing it or ruining it.

I never hung the artwork that I framed last year, a series of watercolors and prints that I bought on vacation in Italy several years ago. Last year, I tried out several hanging layouts and didn't care for any of them and I ended up leaning them all against a trunk for several months. I like how they look leaning against each other so I plan to mount a narrow shelf behind my couch and place the pieces there.

I'm tackling my laundry room. I'm usually the only one who sees it but it is difficult to get into (there's a bike standing in the doorway), it is rather cramped with a narrow shelf on one side and a rack (that is really too wide) on the adjacent wall, it's dusty and needs a desperate cleaning and organizing. Since I don't like climbing my way in there on a regular basis, laundry piles up in my room until I can't stand it anymore. I do several loads at one time and then dump the clean clothes in another part of my bedroom. Not good.
So, I plan to do a deep cleaning, switch the rack and shelf, finish up some painting I started 6 years ago (that's right, 6 years ago), and do something to organize my household items, like tools and detergents, etc. I hesitate to add another shelf or cubby as the room is already rather small but that may be my only option. I'm thinking under neath the narrow shelf, after I've moved it.
Other Cure updates (as this is my first post, ever!):
Using my list from last year ('cause I didn't get very far at all last year). Still not done with the floors but I'm getting closer. The main living area and kitchen are done but still need to finish the hall and the bedrooms. The bedrooms are complicated by my sister living in one and the aforementioned piles of laundry in mine.
