When we first decorated Hudson’s nursery gallery wall, I knew we would have to come up with a solution to secure everything to the wall in case little hands got curious and tried to pull everything down! When Hudson turned 7 months old it was finally time to do something about it. He isn’t standing up yet but he probably will before I know it!
I considered installing these picture rail hooks on the wall, but ultimately went with Command strips.
They were super easy to use. Just snap two strips together….
Stick them on the back of your frame….
Then stick the frame on the wall. Press the frame to the wall for 30 seconds and then rip it off. This is what you’ll find in it’s place. And then just snap your frame back up on the strips. Super easy! Then repeat with the rest of your frames.
This project only took me a few minutes, but it bought a lot of piece of mind.
Those frames are nice and secure now! See the small black line on the side…you totally can’t see it unless you really look.
Now if this little stinker tries to pull the frames down they won’t budge! Or accidentally fall on him and injure him either.
I still need to pick up one smaller command strip to secure his bat to the wall. But check this project off my to-do list!
Love that little face.

Now, have you all met my sweet sponsor Lindsay? You should…she’s kinda awesome.
Hi everyone, my name is Lindsay and I blog over at You Are The Roots. I’m honored to be posting today over at The Girl in the Red Shoes! I’m a 20-something first-time mom to my almost two year old little boy, Ethan. I’m married to my high-school sweetheart and we all live in Southeast Florida — which means I never post about how cold it is and spend a lot of time at the beach.
You Are The Roots is my journey into first-time motherhood told through stories and photographs of the adventure that is raising Ethan. We’re big on art projects, sensory activities and play-based learning, and I do tot school with Ethan at home. Our home is usually covered in fingerpaint, but that’s okay.
Ethan suffers from asthma, so when I’m not busy in my role as a mommy, I’m working hard to drum up support for my yearly blog-a-thon to raise funds to provide nebulizers to those in need. It’s easy to take for granted how fortunate we are by having the medical care that we do when there are countless children losing their lives to asthma regularly. Thank you Julie for having me this month as a sponsor! Feel free to stop by You Are The Roots soon!
