Say goodbye to hammers and nails and hello to VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Wall Fasteners or HANGables® Wall Fasteners. I like to decorate (or redecorate) with ease. I change up my walls so much, if I actually used nails for every item I hung, I would not be getting my security deposit back. Using VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Wall Fastening Solutions is my favorite way to hang something up quickly and efficiently. Plus, my walls won’t be ruined.
My most recent redecorating project was a gallery wall in my living room. Gallery walls are the perfect way to mix it up because there are a ton of different ways you can do them. You can make them perfectly aligned, slightly mismatched, or even cover entire walls in photos. I like to add different types of items to gallery walls and really customize them to my liking.
For this wall, I knew I wanted the oval mirror and I decorated around it. I horizontally aligned my photos. Doing this can make them go well together, even if they are different sizes.
*TIP: Use Photoshop or Adobe Sketch to plan out your wall.
I used Adobe Sketch to plan my wall and took a photo of the wall and added photos to it in the app on my phone. I planned everything out and then decided on sizes, cut out paper in the same sizes and hung the paper with tape on the wall. I put all the pieces of paper in the same layout I had designed in Sketch and messed around with it a little to make it look exactly how I wanted it. Then I ordered prints and got to hanging.
For the photos, I hung them with the VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable Wall Fastener strips. I hung the anchor with a HANGables® Removable hook. It was super easy and took maybe 15 minutes to hang them all. If you live in a dorm or rent, these things are your new best friend!
