A couple of months ago I did a review on the 3M Command Hooks that I absolutely adore. A couple of my readers asked if I use them to hang my calendars that I have all over my house. Why of course I do! They are perfect for people like me who love to change their minds on a regular basis :)
Earlier this year my girlfriend got a new stainless steel fridge and realized that she wouldn’t be able to hang her magnetic calendar back up on the front of it as she did with her old fridge. Did you know stainless steel fridges aren’t magnetic? I totally had no clue. Anyway she needed to come up with a solution to fix this little problem and of course didn’t want to use anything permanent that might wreck her gorgeous new fridge.
That’s where 3M Command Picture Hanging Stripscame in to play.
These are basically velcro strips, with the same removable backing that the Command hooks use, designed to securely and easily hang pictures on the wall. And guess what? They also worked great for hanging my girlfriend’s calendar on the fridge. I love it when a plan comes together!
Let’s take a look. Sorry about the picture quality…it’s very hard to take pictures of stainless steel…oh the glare, the glare!
The white bits are the strips on and ready to go. One part of the strip goes on the fridge, the other part goes on the actual calendar and then you connect them both together. It’s so romantic :)
Up close and personal.
Ahh all better.
