I will be moving into a new apartment this week and I am not allowed to put any holes, nails or screws into the walls. How can I still be creative and decorate my walls without making any holes or using any adhesives (tapes, tacky gum stuff, foam tape, etc) that will ruin paint or leave residue once pictures and such have been removed?
I remember seeing those mounting things from 3M around Christmas time (they were using them as stocking hooks in the commercials), they're little hooks with some sort of adhesive and it supposedly comes off easily and leaves no residue.....Has anyone used these?
I was also thinking of somehow using some BIG cork tiles and covering one wall with them (somehow.....) and using that to hang pictures. I'm not quite sure how to go about it though......
Any ideas or tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!!
No, it wasn't hard to do. The hardest part was cutting out all of the pages so that the clock would actually fit in it right. I cut out all the pages once then after putting the clock in the front the back part wouldn't fit in the pages right so I had to go through and cut a little more out of all the pages.
As for cost....the book was about $3 at the antique store, the clock kit was about $10 (Michael's), I already had the spray paint (the clock kit came in a bronze color) and mod podge to glue the pages together. I glued my pages together so it would look nicer once mounted on the wall, if you do that don't glue the back cover though or you won't be able to change your battery. ^_^
I was at the antique store a few weekends back and I found a big ole collection of old Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books so I had to snatch some up. Once I got home and started looking through the books a bit more I found "What Happened At Midnight" and I just new that it's fate was to be a wall clock....
