I am a huge fan of Command Hooks and using them in my home to prevent permanent damage to my walls, cabinetry, and more. I thought I would share some of the ways I use them with all of you.

First let’s start with Command Hooks and how to use them They come in a lot of shapes, sizes, and also come with a weight guideline. So pick accordingly depending on what you are hanging.

Inside the command hook packages are strips like this. The first step is to place the correct side to the back of the command hook itself. (The directions will be on the box, and generally the part that goes on the back of the command hook is red.)

The other side of the command hook sticker says “wall” and this is the part you’ll stick to the wall.

You peel off the wall side and place it on the wall and press on it for about 30 seconds. Once it’s up, it is recommended not to hang anything on it for about 1 hour to allow adhesion time.

Here are some of the things I use command hooks for –
Hanging my trivets on my cabinets. This way they are easy to grab, no permanent damage to my cabinets, and displays them decoratively.
In my son’s room I spaced them out on his wall using a ruler…
I hang his hats on the hooks. Makes a nice display, easy grab, and keeps them off the floor.
In my son’s room to display his karate metals.
In my cabinet to hold cleaning supplies.
Our winter gear storage is in these dollar store bins hung up with command hooks. You can see the full tutorial here on this project
To hang up my Pottery Barn Mirror Hack – I bought frame command strips. First – stick the Velcro sides together.
Peel off once side of the strip and place on the back of the picture/frame.
Peel off the other side and place on the wall. You can see the tutorial for my Pottery Barn Mirror Hack here
We use them to prevent putting holes in your wall to put up calendars, chore charts, etc.
I use them on my doors for seasonal decorations and wreaths.

  • I am glad you can get them to stick I have bought to many and none stick

    • Thank you Linda and on no, I’m so sorry that has happened to you! I do know making sure you have the right weight along with pushing and holding the 30 seconds on the wall and waiting an hour after before hanging is important if that helps.

  • I use them too! I was actually planning to do that hat one on the back of our coat closet door because hats were left everywhere. As soon as I bought the hooks & made a plan, the person didn’t want them and decided on a different plant. LOL

    • So glad you use them too Linda 🙂 Oh and so sorry to hear you were all set to go and then the plans changed. I know you’ll use those command hooks for another adventure I’m sure.

  • I love them, too. They are great for so many things!

  • Hi Chas! They are pretty handy. 🙂 We’ve been using them in our glamper home just because Mr. Ethereal is adamant about NOT putting holes in the trailer’s walls {resale value} but we finally did put in some screws a week ago to hang a permanent clothes hanger. 😉 Pinned a couple of photos to my Shopping Trends and Perfect Storage boards for you.

    Have a great day,
    Barb 🙂

    • Hi Barb! I love that you use them too and love that Mr. Ethereal doesn’t want to put holes in your glamper – sounds a lot like my Mr as well 🙂 Thank you so much for the Pins. Have a wonderful week as well.

  • I use Command hooks in some of the same ways. It’s a great product to use when you don’t want to damage your walls.
