Just after some advice. DS has a bright blue feature wall in his room & I've recently purchased wooden letters that spell his name that I'd like to put up (on said feature wall). What's the best way to do it? I was thinking just blu-tak (they're individual letters, so not heavy) but I vaguely remember from my 'pin posters around my room, teenage years' the blu-tak can leave a greasy mark.... Don't really want that..
I've got the 3M velcro strips up in the bathroom & even though they say they don't wreck the wall - they pulled the paint off when I tried to take it off! So not keen on them either.

Blu-tak on walls

I was going to say the Velcro strips. I've never had them take off the paint except when DH didn't pull one off properly.

Hmm I was going to say those velco strips as well. Perhaps you didn't pull them off the right way last time?

Haha maybe it was the way I did it... (ie- user, not product!)
Will go try the other one I've got up & see how I go :smile:
But you'd recommend that over blu-tak?

I haven't had a problem with them... I know I once kind of ripped one of them off and although it didn't rip the paint off it probably could have. You are supposed to pull the tag downwards slowly (from memory.)

I would definitely use them over blutack.
Hold the top tip of the Velcro strip/or hanger, and pull very slowly straight down the wall. It's once you start pulling outwards that problems occur.

I'd use Velcro over Blu take. But not if the velcro was peeling your paint (may not be good quality paint? I've had that problem on our new house).

i used double sided tape to put up DS's wooden letters, They held well and the paint was fine after 2 years.
