Hopefully you all are already using Command Picture Hanging Strips because they are truly my favorite shortcut tool. Anything that keeps me from having to get out a hammer and nails is my friend. And accuracy has never been my strong suit so I have now found a shortcut to my shortcut.
*One tip though- peal apart the two strips first and then stick them together. If you don’t, you may risk pulling them off the wall when you take your frame up and down. If the strips are actually separated first, it won’t pull the back one off the wall!
Now there is no lining up the two strips when you go to hang your picture.
Peal off one of the backings and stick the stuck-together strips to your frame.
Then peal off the other backing and stick it to the wall.
I know! Pretty life-changing stuff here 🙂
But it really has taken away some of the work and
I am a little less intimidated to finally hang some things around here.
I used my method to hang a map I gave Taylor for Christmas.
It’s by a local artist, Evan Plante and if you can check out all of his art in his Etsy shop:
If you are local, you can find a similar print at Paper Skyscraper (best store in Charlotte for little gifts)!
Now on to the vignette I created in my guest room…
The map, which shows all the neighborhoods of Charlotte.
We are in Myers Park
You can see a little of my Peter Dunham-esque pillow peaking out up there.
I blogged about that, here.
I was a little unhappy about the lack of color in this vignette but,
the room as a whole is going to be packed with color and pattern so I needed a place for your eyes to rest. I can’t wait to show you the rest! You will either think I have lost it or that I have been studying up on the Jamie-Meares-method 🙂
