Wonder of Wonders, Miracle of Miracles!

So, I've fallen in love with the command Picture Hanging Strips. My mother-in-law bought me some for a painting she wanted me to hang, and I thought, "They'll never hold!" Once she left, I put them aside, and forgot about them, until the day I decided to hang the picture, and couldn't find my nails... So, I grabbed the hanging strips, followed the instructions, and placed one strip on all 4 sides of the medium sized painting, and stuck it to the wall. I stared at the picture for a good 10 minute making sure it wasn't slipping. Almost a year later, the painting is still stuck and steady on my hallway wall :) And, if I decided to take it down, all I have to do is pull the tab and it'll come clean off my wall without scraping, refilling a hole, pulling the paint off or anything! I *heart* the Command Picture Hanging Strips :)

Well now I know why stores still carry them...somebody likes them! I've had a terrible time with them. They've all fallen off the wall. I hate them!

Did you use enough on your paintings? If your painting/picture is too heavy, they'll all fall off. You have to make sure you have enough around your painting. Put all of them on your painting if it's huge, sometimes even 2 packages work better on a large picture.

Hope that helps.
