Since I am in a rented house, I can’t have nails on my walls :(
So I chose washi tapes to support my monogram. The best thing about washi tapes, is that you can use it like a normal tape and it will not damage your walls while peeling off ! Isn’t that a great factor for those living in rented house?

So here is the final pic on my wall – I know the edges aren’t good, as washi tapes are visible outside the letters, but it still looks pretty!
