How to display paintings without attaching to walls, rental property

Susie CarpenterCindyJewellmartin


Some of the items are quite heavy some quite large. Not allowed to nail screw or stick to walls

  • For the large heavy ones, go loft style and just lean them against the wall in groupings. For smaller items, use easels, either full size or table top.

    What about command hooks? They do not ruin the walls?

    Command Velcro Strips are fabulous. They come in sizes for different weight pictures are easily removed and don't damage the walls in any way.

    If you can use Command strips and hooks, there are some made for heavy paintings. I like the look of a heavy table or mantle lined in double rows with paintings and photographs. You could always alternate displaying two or three items at a time. Best wishes, Bec. ☺️

    I love pictures on easels. I think easels gives a timeless look. Command products are a good choice too. Interior decorators say that pictures and knick knacks should be displayed in multiples of three. Best wishes and good luck.
