Command Hook from 3M Review {Giveaway} CAN ONLY

Ok, I have to admit that I am one of those people who pokes holes in the walls with thumb tacks... most of the time I make more than one... ok I make A LOT and it always looks terrible after.

When we moved into our new place I didn't want to riddle the wall with holes - my mom told me about the 3M Command Hooks and bought us some. I must say, I LOVE THEM! I have them up all over the house. Some under the sink to hold mt duster, one to hold my oven mitts and I even have one in the bathroom to hold our 'dunk and swish' gloves for J's diapers!

When I received an email from 3M Command asking if I would be interested in reviewing their Brushed Metal Decorative hooks, I agreed right away!

I was sent 2 large Traditional Brushed Nickel Hooks, as well as a Value Pack of the medium sized Brushed Nickel Hooks. The Large Hooks look like real metal which is great! While I like the white plastic ones too these just make looks more sleek.

My first thoughts:

"These looks so stylish! I wonder where I can put these!"

The hooks themselves are so easy to use: 2 steps to attach and 2 steps to take down:

I really love that the hooks can be removed without damaging the wall. All you have to do is pull on the strip and it comes off clean. No paint removal, or residue.

For the large hooks, I put them down at our front door to hang our coats and my purse. We don't have a very large space at the bottom of the stairs - so finding a way to be able to hang up coats and whatnot was something I was looking into. The 3M Command Traditional Brushed Nickel Hook allows us to have that extra storage on the wall - so I don't need a coat rack now!!! The hooks say they can hold up to 5 lbs and let me tell you - yes they can!! My purse is not light, either is Chris' work jacket and we have had NO issues with them falling off. 

At my entry way

I was also sent a Value Pack of the same hooks but in size medium. The medium hooks are great for hanging smaller items. James and I did some art work and he wanted it to be hung on his door... the medium hooks worked great for that. I didn't worry about it falling off the door or damaging the door.

The Value Pack it's a great deal . It comes with 3 medium sized hooks and 6 medium strips. Plenty for all your decorating needs. I plan on using my others for our fall decorating. Or maybe in Graham's room... Oh I don't know! But I do know I will need some more! 

J's wooden letter - I love that we can change the art work without having to remove the hook!

My overall thoughts: 

I LOVE the Command Hooks. I am so happy that I do not have to make a bunch of holes in the walls for thumb tacks. I plan to go out and get some of the picture hooks so we can hang all of our family photos. I've been putting it off as we have a lot and that would be a lot of nails etc. I'd also really like to try out the Command Caddy. I think it would be great in the kitchen where our calender is to toss in miscellaneous stuff. There are literally 100's of ways to use the Command Hooks. In your kitchen, bedroom, in your child's room. In school, in dorm.. the possibilities are endless.
