I wanted to spice up our kitchen/dining room a bit with a lighted garland. Simple enough right?
We only finished remodeling this space during the summer, so I wasn't too keen on messing up my glorious handy work. So I bought four of these guys to do the job:
Which left my walls looking like crap. This one took some paint with it and scuffed up the trim in the process.
And this one took a whole hunk of drywall with it. Seriously, it's a crater.
So, I realize that most of the problem in this case was "user error". I clearly didn't think about how the removal process would work and the room I'd need to pull down on those tabs. But still. It's a tough pill to swallow when you've JUST gotten your space renovated and lovely, and have to whip out the joint compound and paint. Have you had success with Command Strips? Should I give 'em another chance?
