There's something all too satisfying about hanging things up using Command Hooks. You don't have to hammer nails into the wall—or patch holes and repaint when you move or change up your wall art. It's no wonder they've taken off everywhere.
But the one issue with many of the ones you see in stores is that they're a little, well, utilitarian. Often clear or white plastic, they're fine if you're hanging up art that covers the hook. Or if you buy Command strips and stick them to sleek binder clips, like this no-nail gallery wall DIY. On their own, though, they're not so sexy—until now.
3M just launched a new line of metallic hooks that are meant to be shown off. There's a set of small metal hooks in copper, brass, and stainless steel finishes (and yes, rose gold fanatics, the copper version could easily pass for your fave color). Each pack—which retails for $7.99—comes with four small hooks, each one capable of supporting half a pound each. It makes them ideal for hanging in a row and using to display jewelry, keys, or your velvet Scrunchie collection (because you know the '90s is coming baaaack!).
The line includes medium single hooks and large double hooks, which are sold in brushed nickel and one of the past year's hottest finishes, matte black. The medium hooks cost $7.99 apiece, holding up to 3 pounds, while the large hooks are $10.99 and can hold 4 pounds. Those versions are your best bet for hanging up purses or jackets.
