Damage Free Wall Collage

July 19, 2014

Do you have a wall in your home that looks bare like mine?  Or maybe you are a renter and are not able to put holes in your walls.  If so, keep reading to see you can create a beautiful wall collage without using a nail or hammer.  With the help of 3M Command, I was able to decorate a large wall in my foyer by using damage free picture hanging strips and a single Command hook.   The transformation was fabulous.

Here is a before shot of my foyer.  The walls were bare, boring, and not very welcoming.

Here is the after shot.  I was able to hang several large picture frames, a wreath, an “H” letter and decorative items without using a single nail. I like to change up my decor often, so using Command products allows me to place pictures anywhere. Once I am ready to switch to something else, they are super easy to remove.

Picture hanging strips are probably the most used “tools” for decorating in my home. I hardly ever use a nail or screw anymore.

All you need are some frames & Command Strips and you are ready to begin.

The picture hanging strips are easy to use. Just follow the directions on the back of the package.

Fill in the bare spaces with decorative pieces.  Use your imagination and go with your own style.  The possibilities are endless.

Use a Command hook to hang a colorful wreath with the pictures.

One last before shot.  It wasn’t very welcoming for an entryway wall.

Now the space looks inviting and stylish.

    Wow! Such a great change! I, for once, can vouch for those picture hanging strips– so much easier than a hammer and nail, anyway! Your entry way looks great now! And this will be so easy to update for different holidays, too. Where is the numbered hook thing from?

    This is just gorgeous…and so classy 🙂

    Wonderful job on the gallery wall up the stairs…I am loving your decorating in your new, beautiful home…

  5. julie says:

    Nice job!

  6. Amanda says:

    I have seen you use those wreaths a lot and I just love them. Where do you get them? Thanks!

  7. Jenny Lynn says:

    Didn’t know command strips could be so useful. I have some pictures to hang. Going to grab some command strips to give a try.

  8. I absolutely LOVE it!

  9. Kelly says:

    I love those frames? Where can I find them?

  10. Kristin says:

    I used those to create a picture wall in my hallway where I wanted everything exactly lined up. I made sure to use one designed for much heavier frames than I had but after 4 months one of the frames ripped the paint off the wall and fell. A few weeks later a second one fell so now I have 4 rectangles of missing paint in the hallway. 🙁

      I was going to post something about this too. I have never been able to get the command strips to work very well either. We were in CA and they *sort of* worked. We moved to Houston and I could only get one out of three to stay on. I saw another post that indicated maybe the humidity…which makes me think that might be true. I wish I could get them to work! If anyone has ideas, please let me know!

    Toni this is great. I’m always afraid of ruining our walls. This looks great and can be changed if it doesn’t look as planned. I loved the 4th of July post. I have my banner and my stars and strips bunting on order for next year. Please keep sharing more iedeas for this product. Hey it works!

  12. kristin says:

    Looks terrific! I like the wreaths. I am laughing; I just bought the same plaque with hooks a few weeks ago for my necklaces. Great minds think alike. 😉

    • Kathy t says:

      Where did you get the plaque? We have six people in our family so I like to use the number six in my decorating . Thanks 🙂

      • Rachel says:

        I swooned when I saw that too! With six in our family, it would be a great addition. Toni purchased it from TJMaxx.

  13. Amy says:

    I love these Command hooks and use them all the time! I love that I can just take them off and re-arrange whenever I want without having to do any major work on the walls.

  14. Joy says:

    The wall looks great!! Where did you find the numbered sign with hooks?

  15. Simone Wolfe says:

    I’ve been using Command Strips for all of my decorating for years! Best idea ever! Wish I would have developed it!

  16. Stephanie says:

    I’m crazy for Command hooks too! We own a condo which we hope to sell soon, I’m therefore avoiding nail holes and all the patchwork required to make them disappear. I recently hung our summer hats by the front door so we can grab n’ go on sunny days. #heaven

  17. Linda Dowling says:

    Thank you so much for this post. We just moved into a home in AZ and I have no desire to put holes in the walls. I never thought that the commands would hold pictures! I am one excited girl right now. Time to go out and get me some packs so I can make my new house feel like HOME. Thanks again!

  18. What a lovely wall decorating idea! Thanks for the inspiration! Now I have something in mind for my hallway 🙂 Thanks!

  19. Love how it turned out and and that you didn’t even have to use any nails, good cheat thanks for sharing!

  20. Karissa says:

    I love your wall. We use the command hooks also and they are great.

  21. Why didn’t I think of this before I put nails all through my apartment walls. You’d think it be common sense by now! Command strips are one of the greatest inventions.

  22. Kaylee Coles says:

    I love Command Strips! I’ve heard that some people have had problems with them not staying up, but I used them all four years I was in college and now I use them in the apartment my husband and I recently moved into (we don’t want to have to patch up holes/repaint before we move out). I think maybe it might depend on the humidity of the area you live in — we’re in Utah, where it’s extremely dry. They’re way easier than nails, especially if you like to move things around a lot.

  23. Hayley says:

    Wow! Such a great transformation. I did a similar picture frame wall to display my daughter’s artwork. We called it ‘The Hall of Frame’ 🙂 Would love you to stop by and have a look.

    • Rachel says:

      I was going to leave a comment on your blog… I love the bright cheerful colors. Beautifully done. And I love your title for it!

  24. I may just need to use this look. Love it and how clean the lines are… great for a staircase wall. xox

  25. Angela says:

    I love this! I have bought numerous plants in the same greenery as the small wreath you have hanging on the numbered hook. I found mine in several small shops that no longer carry them. I’m desperate to find more!

    Can you please tell me where you bought yours?

    Thanks so much – love your posts!

  26. Brandi says:

    I live in Hawaii and the humidity makes these impossible to use. I was so disappointed when in the middle of the night my pictures went crashing to the ground

  27. Reni Forbes says:

    I love this and am going to use your idea. I have a stairway that is so bare. It will be bare no more. Thank you
