How to hang a poster without damaging the walls! (Try it Thursday)

It is time for TRY IT THURSDAY! 

How to hang posters without damaging the walls!

I can definitely say I have left many holes and other types of marks on my walls since I was about 5 years old. 

I have a massive obsession to want to hang and decorate my room and I forget that a nail and a hammer is not always the right way to do it. 

Some walls do not hold nails due to what the walls are made of. I have tried to hang up photos and shadow boxes with nails and I end up having them fall out because my wall lacks the strength to really grip the nail and it falls off with a powder grit. I am sure many of you know what I am talking about. 

I have tried just about EVERYTHING! I have used masking tape, painters tape, that gum gray to blue color sticky puddy (which ruins the backs of posters :( and FINALLY I found exactly what works on ALL WALL TYPES! 

That is correct you heard me right ALL WALL TYPES! From wood, to stucco, THIS can hang up ANYTHING and best of all it lasts! What is it you may ask?

WELL its COMMANDS! Yup! Commands! Command strips are the bomb . com! But the best part is that Commands have so many varieties that it does not matter what you want to hang or how heavy it is, it will do the job! Commands can even be cut down too! 

I wanted to hang up my MEGA HUGE poster of Sailor Moon (of course) and I tired it all! I did not want to ruin it so I ended up getting Commands and I cut them down. Yup you can cut them down to size so they don't stick out like a sore thumb! But as bland as they look, we are not talking about how they look but how they WORK! 

I will show you what I mean below....

My photos may not be pretty (I did not have time to add some nifty filters) but I really wanted to show you how and what I used ...

This is the pack of Velcro Commands in white.  You get about 6 in a package. You take one Velcro and stick it to the back and another one you stick on your wall. 

It uses a "teeth" to interlock the Velcros together rather then the typical fuzzy background to the teeth background. 

 The down arrow is how you remove it from the wall but I learned that even if you cut them, you can still remove the Commands even without pulling that tab.
I used all of about 2 strips to cut into 4 to stick on the 4 corners of my poster and on my wall. 

Commands do come with hooks of all sizes and colors, Velcro in black or white, and they sell so so much more. If you have something to hang and want to change it up later or you don't want to damage the wall or your Commands, because they will not disappoint! 

And lastly I bought these myself and no one gave them to me, no samples, no nothing. They are my own and I have some left to hang up some other things which will I will show you in anther blog post soon to come!
