Brought to you by Command™ Picture Hanging Strips.
I move prints around in my home all the time. Of course, every time I do this I end up with holes on my walls (which annoys my husband to no end). I’ve been wanting to put these huge 60 x 90cm prints up for a while, but I haven’t been able to decide on where they would look best.
So instead of whacking a few more holes on the walls, I was glad when Command™ Picture Hanging Strips came to my rescue! I could put the prints up, take some photos and then decide on which spot works better. Actually, YOU can help me!
I bought the prints online (I wrote about them here), got them printed at Officeworks and I purchased the large frames for $15 from Kmart.
I haven’t used the Command™ Picture Hanging Strips before, but was eager to give them a go. They come in so many different sizes to suit your wall hanging. I made sure I picked the right strip for the size of the frame. There is a handy guide on the back. So for me, I need the strips to hold 7.2kg as the instructions say they will hold a 60 x 90cm frame.
I positioned the strips as per the instructions – 4 x sets of strips on each frame.
They were so easy to put on the wall. Remove the little plastic sticker back and then push the frame on… If they are a little crooked you can easily re-position. You can watch a good video here too.
All you have to do is gently pull the frame upwards from the bottom and you’ll hear a velcro sound.
- You then need to press firmly for 30 seconds before removing – left behind will be 4 strips and the matching ones will be on the frame.
- Ideally remove the picture for 1 hour before re-hanging for maximum strength.
The strips come in both black and white – I used the black ones here as they were easier for me to photograph.
I had a go at removing them altogether and it’s easier than ever. Just gently pull the flap directly down and it’ll be off in a matter of seconds.
But then I wasn’t sure if I really liked them in this spot, so I decided to add another set of strips and place the frame on an opposite wall to see what they would look like…
