We've been on a kick lately to get our pictures hung up in the condo. I think there's just something about having things that you're familiar with, and had in prior homes to make a new place feel more lived in and personalized. Because this is a rental unit we didn't want to put a bunch of holes in the walls with our frames, so instead we turned to one of the blogosphere's favorite products: 3M Command Strip picture hangers. So far they've worked on one small gallery wall, but on another section of our house it was a complete and utter fail.
I'm talking broken picture frames and damaged walls that cannot be repaired. We had gone this route in an effort to protect our rental walls, and now we're left with damage that cannot be fixed. I wouldn't even know where to start. And it's not like we can just cover up the damage with a picture or something because apparently that doesn't work in this space. I'm so pissed off.
