  • thats stupid. i would do it and plaster the wall before moving. the comand hooks with the adhesive stuff dont work for everything but you could try that. we plan on having a picture wall in our apartment, and using the one inch wire nails.

  • We did it anyway. we will just not get our security deposit back. If you don't want to do that though you could use 3m strips. They peel right off without damaging the walls or paint.

  • There are some hangers make by 3M I think... they are temporary. You can hang something on the wall and then pull a tab and the adhesive comes off with out leaving a mark. Look for them at the hardware store, or ask and they will know what it is.

  • We make holes, but patch them up before moving. Sometimes we use the 3M hanging putty, but it really doesn't work good.

  • Check your state laws. In our state nail holes are considered normal wear and tear and not damage. If you put up 40 nail holes in a single wall, that would not be normal, but one or two should be okay.

  • Were not supposed to but we do anyways. Its not hard to fill 'em when you move. If your not handy I agree with the others. 3M seems to work good.

  • Nail holes are easy to fill in. Hang away!
