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.

Nice post, so much so, I added the shortened URL as a ps to a post I did on decorating a nursery in a rental home some months ago. Hope my readers will find you on Project Nursery when they see "When You Can't Paint the Walls" on Thanks.

Thanks for this video. I have been wondering, too (for as long as I could remember), how I could hang my growing collection of photo frames without ending up with a pockmarked wall.
