How to hang the BEKVÄM spice rack without drilling holes

hang without drilling wall

No drilling, no mess, renter-friendly … hang it up without making a single hole.

I wanted to add a spice rack to my kitchen, but the backsplash is all made of solid glass in which is impossible to drill holes.

When I saw the BEKVÄM spice rack from IKEA, I had an idea of sticking the shelf to the glass with some 3M Command adhesive stripes.

However it didn’t go as smoothly as I envisioned.

After several tries with different type of glue-on stripes, a fallen rack and a broken spice jar, I finally found out that the 3M Command sawtooth picture hangers fit perfectly in the BEKVÄM screw slots!

Each 3M Command adhesive stripe with the hook can hold up to 4 pounds (1.8 kg). They adhere well to a variety of surface including painted walls, and can be removed without any damage by stretching them to release the adhesive. They are a wonderful and strong product and a perfect solution to avoid drilling holes in the walls!
