Reader Q&A + Video: Tackling Wall Decor in a Rental

Melisa and I have been answering reader questions that we’ve received via our Facebook Fan Page or Twitter. Today’s question comes from Project Nursery community member Lucy who is temporarily living in a rental and wants to give her baby’s nursery a makeover without damaging the walls.

Although we always love a fresh coat of paint, there are great options when paint is a “no-no.” Melisa, with a little help from our friends at NoJo, shares a few ideas about damage-free decorating  by using wall stickers and decals. She also offers a fantastic trick for hanging wall art without a using a single nail, thanks to a nifty product called Command Strips. Take a peek at Melisa in action to find out more…
