As a recent college graduate and former on campus resident (now renter), I’ve acquired a bunch of great hacks and DIYs over the years on ways to decorate and organize my space like a pro without damaging any walls, furniture, or my wallet!
Working at Pro Tapes® and learning about all of our amazing clean removal products, it had really opened my eyes to so many more ways to achieve the same outcome but with much more ease, and effectiveness. Before I would be using “clean removal” products that actually weren’t so easy to remove. Now that I have been introduced to UGlu®, Pro® 46 and Pro Gaff®; the whole game has changed!
Keep in mind there are two distinct ways I utilized these three Pro Tapes® products; one, tape is being used as the actual decoration, and two, tape is being used as a replacement for hooks, nails, glue or screws.
Shall we jump right into it?
Being the neat freak I am, I love this hack because I like everything to be tucked away and out of sight. For this solution, every inch of unutilized space will be utilized, for the ultimate tidy room.
Who doesn’t love a good hack? Not only are these hacks awesome but they also really work!
