Hanging pictures

Hi, we are fairly new to the MH thing and DW has decided that it needs to be more homey (translation - hang stuff on the walls.). So does anyone have tried and true suggestions? Thanks in advance for all of the innovative ideas.

You could do the motel way, screwed through the frame into the wall. I put in a screw in the wall at the top and a notched metal strip picture hanger to hang on the screw. At the and velcro on the bottom to hold them in place. No issues so far. I realize the next owner will have an issue, but that's not my problem.

We haven't used them in our MH (yet) but I would imagine one of the 3M Command products like their velcro strips might do the trick. We use them in our home quite a bit on our painted walls and even cabinets. The number of strips we use depends on the weight of the item and if they ever need to be removed they can be very easily. They make poster strips, picture hanging strips, the little plastic hooks, etc. You can buy replacement adhesive strips when needed. The only thing that it may come down to is the surface that you are mounting anything on. Good luck!

Ditto ... we have a corkboard and frame hung on the Command strips. No marks if you want to remove it.

I have used these in the coach as well as on a marble wall above the fireplace in my home and they work very well. easy to remove with no holes or problems to deal with later.

Yep, Velcro. We've never had anything come loose. Velcro is also helpful up both sides of a drawer that is too heavy for the latch.

I would go with a good type of double-sided tape. I don't like screw holes in my walls!
