I don't like making holes in the wall unless it's necessary because they're such eyesores.
It's sort of tedious to patch up holes and paint over them, especially if you rent.
And who knows what color paint you used, if you ever remember.

Thankfully the 3M Command strips made it possible to prevent wall hole making.
Aside from hanging posters and hooks as suggested by 3M,
I came up with other ideas on how to hang other items such as drapes
without poking holes in the wall a couple years ago at a friend's place.

There are 3 various ways that I came up with but this instructable will be showing
the customizable way and at the end are the 2 variations.
It's just a matter of using hardware and supplies beyond what they're originally intended for.
These hanging methods are meant for medium to light curtain or drapes.

Being that this was done a while back, the photo documentation isn't as detailed
as my recent work.
But this project is very easy and straightforward anyways.
I don't work for 3M, I just like this product.
Hope to save a few walls by publishing this. :D

Step 1: Supplies

Supplies List:

Pressure Treated Beveled Post Cap (Home Depot SKU#429429) Lumber section, Decking
Wall Door Stop (Lowes) Door Hardware section
Primer
Paint or Spray paint (especially for rubber)
Super strong glue like Gorilla Glue or Liquid Nails
3M Command Strips
Spring Tension Rod
Drapes

Note: Probably can also use Rossette Blocks and Rubber cups used for the bottom of furniture
as subtitutes but haven't tried it.
<p>I like your ideas and agree about the cheap paint being damaged.. We rent but have leeway in what we do to the house (lovely landlords). Your idea of the mughooks should work marvelous downstairs in what they called The Sunroom. Three big windows and sliding doors. Put up curtains on two but third one we could not drill into the wall surface (???) They already had hooks/nails in the frame for a light curtain on stretchy cord. It cops the afternoon sun so I would like to put up the last curtain rod<br>Thankyou for the ideas..</p>
<p>Warning about Command hooks - every time I have ever left them up for more than a couple of weeks, they rip holes in the paint when I take them down. Most apartments use the cheapest paint available when repainting between tenants, and command hooks do NOT do well on cheap paint - Several times I have ripped the paint off then &quot;releasing&quot; the adhesive. Don't trust them in apartments - screw holes are easier to fix than big patches torn off down to the drywall!</p>

On step 4, the <strong>image</strong>, what is the list of supplies needed to do that, what are the rings with the clasps on them called, where can they be purchased? what is the rod you are using made out of(where can it be purchased)? I really need some curtains for my room, and this seems like the perfect way to do it. please help me do it by giving me the list of supplies need.<br/><br/>-Thanks<br/>
I was to hang a mosquito net for house in Taiwan. The 3M command strips certainly a good choice to put a hooks on concrete wall and ceiling than driving or drill into the concrete.
Wow, didn't realize they're that strong and adhesive enough to go on concrete. Thanks for the tip, tropical mosquitoes are definitely the worst. I just came from the art show tonight and they used the command strips too.
As a former renter and someone who likes to change things pretty regularly, I have to say this a really good Instructable. Thanks for sharing. :)
