Do Command Strips Work?

Yes, Command Strips Work. And they’re quick and easy!

It’s no longer reaching temperatures over the century mark here in South Texas, so we’ve declared it officially Fall. Now you must understand that temperatures in the 80’s and low 90’s qualify as fall weather in our neck of the woods. Don’t make fun of us but if it is a bit crisp in the early morning or evening we need a little sweater or jacket. All of this means it is time for me to tackle the long over due coat hooks for Miss Enigma’s room. And I’m putting Command Strips to the test.

Project: Coat Hooks for Miss Enigma’s Room

I had my eye on these number hooks at our local Hobby Lobby store. When they went on sale, I made my move! I grabbed a pack of Command Strips and went to work.

Here’s my target area. This blank little space right as you walk into Miss Enigma’s room. It is sandwiched in-between the door to her room and her closet. Not much you can do with a little space like this. But perfect for coat hooks.

15 minutes later . . . I’m all done!!! I’m done!!! No hammer! No nails! No wall anchors! No screws!

  • I simply followed the directions on the package. Easy!
  • One month later, the Command Strips are still holding up the wear and tear of a 5-year-old.
  • I’ll let you know if they crash and burn.

You might have noticed the adorable purse and bag on Miss Enigma’s hooks. I purchased these while volunteering in Cambodia this summer. They are handmade by the Daughters’ of Cambodia. “Daughters’ is a faith-based non-Government organization reaching out to victims of sex trafficking in Cambodia. Daughters’ vision is to empower clients with the internal capacity and the external resources to change their own lives.”

Together we can make this world a safe and peaceful place for all.

Great job. Those hooks are too cute. We label everything by the first letter of each child’s name so if I could find letter hooks I would be thrilled. I’m gonna look now that you’ve given me some inspiration.

Briana, Hobby Lobby also has letter hooks in the same style. I had a hard time deciding between the numbers and letters.

I bought these same hooks months ago but in the letter version for the boys bathroom. They are still not up because I am having a hard time finding just the right screws. Maybe I will try this. Let’s see how those command strips work in a humid environment with three BOYS!
