Welcome to part two of the three part 3M Command Love Your Walls Series. In case you're just joining in, the series is part of a campaign for 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips, where I have the fun job of demonstrating how I use the strips in my own home. In the first post I re-styled the picture wall in my main living area. If you missed it, take a look here. The strips were so easy and effective to use, I couldn't wait to get started on this next project!
Today I'm going to show you how I've decorated the wall in our downstairs living room. Quite different to the upstairs space, which is bright, airy and open-plan, this room is smaller, cosier and designed to be used more as a space for the kids. While I love displaying wall art, prints and posters, I wanted to do something different to upstairs, that would give the room a relaxed and playful vibe.
I decided to start with an Ikea Picture Ledge. I purchased two (one long, one short) and placed them side by side above the sofa. Providing a great place to display pictures, books or small objects, when we first put it up, I was surprised to find one of my pictures had fallen off. The kids had been playing downstairs with their little friends, and the sliding doors were open, which can cause it to be quite breezy. Whether one of the kids knocked it or it was the wind, I'm not sure, but either way I knew I needed to find a solution to keep the frames from falling off. Of course the 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips have provided just that.
To demonstrate what I did, let's go back to the beginning.
Firstly, I placed 3M Command strips on the top corners of each frame.
I then set about trying out a different configuration. Luckily 3M Command sent me lots of strips to play with!
