So awhile back I made a wall with brick veneer for a fake, lighter weight "brick wall" look:

Veneer Link

I have been trying to find effective ways to hang things from it such as picture frames, a theremostat, etc. I do not want to use screws or drill holes as the items may move in the future. I would rather use something semi permanent.

  • I have tried using the Command Hooks (removable hangers) but they just fall off since it doesn't stick to the veneer very well.
  • I have also tried using hot glue which I thought would be a slam dunk but the same thing, the items just fall off the wall easily.

Any other suggestions? Perhaps something exists out there that I am unaware of?

  • they make special clips that attach to bricks. very effective from what i've seen; my g'ma used to have heavy ornate mirrors hanging with them. they look kind of like tiny rakes, but i don't know a brand to search for... if the brick facade is too planer, you might try a water-soluble adhesive like craft glue that can permeate the bricks and be steam-removed later; hotglue gets too thick too quickly to "soak in" to the brick's crevices. gluing washers or nuts let you use magnets or screws to attach items to the glue. – dandavis Dec 15 '17 at 12:07
  • @dandavis I will try that this week. I think the water soluble adhesive will be the best bet. I have seen the hooks that attach but my grout is about even to the bricks so not much surface to grip onto. – Eric F Dec 18 '17 at 13:30
