Today's Tool Time is a quick tip, but one of my absolute must haves in the house. They are Command's 3M removable strips and hooks. I know you have probably seen these on TV, but they really do work. The hooks come in different sizes and can be used for anything. They mount to just about any surface and really remove without harming the wall, paint or wood. The tip with removing it, is to pull the tab straight down close to the wall. It stretches as it comes off without any damage. Here is a small sample of some that I have.
I use them in a small cabinet in our bathroom. The cabinet stores supplies and all my jewelry. On the inside of the door was wasted space, so I used the hooks to hang all my necklaces.
Here is one on our front door which is metal. There is one issue with this...it will pop off in extreme temps in the winter.
Great to hang your favorite wreath.
This is what the hook looks like. You will have to apply the sticker to the hook. One side says "wall" and the other is applied to the hook. See the black arrows on the bottom tab...that's where you pull it straight down to remove.
I used these hooks to hang two wreaths over our bed. I move furniture so much, I would have holes in the walls everywhere if I didn't use these.
You can't tell where this one is, but it's on the top of our fireplace mantel. I leave them up all year, because you can't really see them. They work great for hanging the evergreen garland at Christmas!
They also stick to glass.
Oh, look another wreath. I think I have a problem.
These are the covered cork boards in my sewing room. See the little tabs sticking out of the corners of the black one. I used the poster stickers for these. No hooks needed, you just stick them to the item and then to the wall. I never use the stickers that come with the cork squares. They will ruin the wall.
This one is a large hook I have mounted to the inside cabinet door of my pots and pans. This holds the cords to electric skillets.
This one holds little flashlights. You know when your family isn't feeling well and they want you to check their throat. Well, hang this next to the medicine cabinet, so you always have one on hand.
and this is a decorative wall art that may change with the wind, so sticker hooks are better than nails.
This was a quick tip, but one you can use in a million ways. For quilting you could sew little rings to the back corners of the quilt and then hang it from the hooks. Make sure the hooks are below the quilt edge so you can't see them. Just think...quilts everywhere and no nails. The hooks are labeled with the weight that it can hold, so make sure you use the right size.
Have a wonderful Tuesday,
ps...I have no affiliation with this company, I just love them!
