Heh. Not really. Since we've moved into the new apartment, I've been very slow about personalizing the space. I've always wanted to create a more "homey" feel in the place, especially now that we have a new pair of big, doe eyes that like to look at new things. We also have a ton of framed photos that have been stored in Big D's closet for quite some time now.
Feeling crafty, I decided to hang a few of them this weekend. I used 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips and it literally took 3 minutes to put those bad boys on the wall. These things are awesome! They didn't involve a hammer and nail (and thus no holes in the plaster) or picture-hanging partner. I just prepped the surface with some rubbing alcohol and stuck them up. Oh, I found that using a level helped to ensure proper positioning. They even worked on my heavy wooden frames. I was able to quickly reposition the one that I hung before I got the bright idea to use the level.
If I can get the word out to my fellow city-dwellers in time, I just may save someone a costly deposit at the end of their lease.
Big D was impressed with my handyman-age on this little project. So much so that I've been asked to reorganize my closet. Slow down cowboy. I've got more pictures to hang.
I know. The frames don't match. And the spatial-relationship is weird. I said I was good at hanging the things. Not interior design. Looks like I'll be calling in my sister or sister-in-law for some help with that.
DISCLOSURE – I received a few samples of 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips in exchange for this review. My reviews and recommendations are always honest and true.
