Try a variety of hanging solutions,including tapes, command hooks, and strips.

Here are two different methods of hangingclocks or art without damaging your walls.

1.

Using painter tape from scotch blue, frog tape and Tesa.

(Tesa which is made in germany is my favorite).

Press it for 5 seconds andit will hug anything up to 1 kg of item.

as information, 3M's took a longtime.

around 30 seconds.

This second trick using Tesa Hook and Looptape/velcro.

it will bind your hanging art, pictures orassembling photowalls or gallery with your walls without damage it.

10.

Use clothespins to put up an elegant displayof artwork.

Nothing is too complicated here.

If your drawing skill make you sad, you can print and slap your favorite instagrampictures on your wall.

Any stranger instagram photos will do finetoo.

Have you ever though that? 11.

Or mount your art with hangers.

12.

If you don’t want to lean your artworkdirectly on the floor, then prop it up on a stand.

This is a great trick for large artwork that may be too heavy to mount.

13.

Invest in rolling and/or movable furniture.

Mobile furniture offers a lot of versatility for short-term rentals.

You’ll be able to use the same table or cart around your home for multiple purposes.

You can also use this idea to create a shortend table, a medium cart, or a tall bookshelf in a varietyof widths and depths.

Your only limitations are the pre-cut wood(if you don't own your own tools) and plated slotted angle sizes available toyou.

14.

Sew, braid, or paint a few eye-catchingrugs.

One really cheap option is to make one outof a large drop cloth.

Dun dun dun duuuuuuunnnn! Insert a Floor Cloth.

A floor cloth is basically a reinforced piece of fabric that is sturdy and looks so great!No sewing DIY: 1.

Position your fusible webbing on the backof your fabric (paper side up) 2.

Iron on the paper side (don’t use steam!Just heat and pressure).

Wait until the fabric is completely cooleddown before you peel off the paper.

3.

Notice how the webbing is also on the foldthat I ironed.

You don’t want to miss that part!4.

Now iron your drop cloth right side down onto your fabric/webbing combo.

I am doing it right side down so that the thick edgedoesn’t leave a big gap between the 2 materials.

and done Second idea is, sew this stuff according tovintage rivivals manual.

15.

Craft ladders for shelves or racks fora more striking look.

Or, purchase one to cut all the hustle andleg work.

16.

FYI, this white curtain is from IKEA and they sell it $29,99.

The total weight is 1.

70 kg and to hang it safely you need to buy a tensionrod around $7.

As you can see in this image, I wanted tosee how the tension rod held up before I hemmed the curtains into long cafecurtains.

So far So good.

It has been two weeks and the rod is ableto support the full weight of the curtains.

17.

Zero in on the small things, like theseDIY pineapple magnets.

First up, your plaster mix.

Add cold water to the dry mix until it reaches a nice creamy consistencyand then pour it into the mould to set.

if you don't have the patience of a saintI recommend using a pineapple ice cube tray -that way you can pour a dozen of these magnetsat once! After You've poured in the plaster,give the mould a few sharp taps to remove air bubbles and waitfor the plaster to harden.

After your pineapples have set pop them outof the mould and grab your spray paint!paint those little babies gold and wait from them to dry(it doesn't take long.

) Cut your magnetic tape to the width of yourpineapples, Peel off the adhesive backing and stick themonto the back! Finnally, you can get busy arranging your photoson your fridge! I've used mine with my mini polaroid instagramsnaps.

Not only organize with trays, but decorateyour walls with them.

The best part of hanging your plates/traysis that you’ll have more storage spaceand you’ll also be able to access your trays more easily.

All you need is— and you are going to love this – a toothpaste.

Then push.

Hard.

Hard enough that the toothpaste will come off on the wall –THAT SPOT is where you put the nail.

After the nail is up you can wipe away thetoothpaste with a wet sponge.

Or not.

It’s toothpaste – won’t hurt anyone 19.
