Everyone uses the adhesive strips and hooks to hang pictures and objects in an apartment. These strips prevent wall damage, and it makes the move out process easier. However, did you know there are more uses for these strips then just to hang your Marilyn Monroe poster? Check out the ideas below. For more information check out Apartment Therapy.
Two important notes:
- Always check that the product you're using matches up to the weight of what you want to hang.
- To avoid damage, make sure that the product you choose is right for the surface on which you're hanging something.
