Velcro Me Up!

So pretty!I blatantly stole the idea of velcroing "stuff" to tile from Older and Wisor.

I garage saled this star a few months ago and its been propping its way around the kitchen since. I even considered hanging it. I know - my ability to shock will never cease.

Easy PeasyAnyway once I removed the offensive nail and brace hanging mechanism, I applied velcro tape made especially for smooth surfaces (click on picture to zoom in on the packaging) and centered it over the kitchen sink. In retrospect I should have centered it in the space but this is cute too.

Cost of star - $1 (price on back says it was $15.99 at the Christmas Shoppe)
Velcro tape - $2 (at Home Depot)

Next up: Filching Britt's roman shades idea.

Now that's smart! I have the same issue in my kitchen. I have a place where the cabinets start higher on the wall so there's a large space of just tile. I thought of using an adhesive hook, but that won't hold a lot of weight. I like your velcro idea!
