Three ways to personalise your home with Command hooks

Whether you’re a renter or home-owner, these damage-free DIYs are perfect for adding a personalised touch to your home décor. Get crafty and make a statement using our wide range of Command hooks.

1. DIY wall panelling for wardrobes

Love the look of wall panelling but can’t commit to using nails or glue? We have an inexpensive way to makeover your wardrobe doors.

What you’ll need:

Command medium picture hanging strips

Mitre saw

Paint

Safety equipment

Sandpaper

Timber lengths

Wood glue 

Steps:

    1. Plan out and measure where you’d like for the timber accent frames to go, taking into consideration your desired spacing between them and any colour requirements. We decided to alternate between rectangle and square accent frames, but the design is completely up to you!

    2. Assemble your timber frames using our DIY picture frame video, or purchase pre-assembled stretcher bars designed for any canvas. You can get these at a craft store.

    3. Finish off the timber accent frames by painting them to match your surrounding shade.

    Tip: Bring in a sample and our paint shop team will take the guess work out of colour matching for you.

    4. Once the paint is dry, create your panelled design by applying picture strips to the surface of the door and the back of each wooden frame.

    Tip: If you’ve also decided to paint the surface of your wardrobe door, you’ll need to wait at least 7 days for the paint to cure before adhering any picture strips.

2. Make memories last

Display your favourite keepsakes by creating a versatile memory wall that can be changed with the season.

What you’ll need:

Command clear medium hooks

Steps:

    1. Select your ornaments and memorabilia to display. Some ideas to get you started are: holiday photos, concert tickets, baby keepsakes, a tree of family photographs or Christmas decorations.

    2. Carefully place your wall decal and map out the placement for what ornaments and photos you’d like to display by installing your Command hooks.

    Tip: There’s no rush to create a complete wall, you can always add to and rearrange your favourite memories later on.

Steps:

    1. We suggest the Command medium picture hanging strips for mounting any charts or decorative learning tools, which are great for ABCs or spelling out your child’s name.

    2. Try the Command clear medium hooks for mounting pencil buckets or holders for chalk and art supplies.

    3. Keep school backpacks out of the way in an easy to reach spot with the Command jumbo wall hooks.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
