Command Picture & Frame Hanging Strips
2018 Update video:
In this video, I'll show you how I put up some shelves without drilling or nails into walls or studs. By using 3m Command picture frame strips, you can remove the shelf without damaging the wall. The shelf attaches via the command velcro-like strips and can easily be detached for re-positioning. The strips can then be removed from the wall without leaving any holes.
I use this method to put action figures and other small items. Heavy items are not recommended. I estimate it can probably hold up to 5lbs of stuff.

Shangas0 I used the strips to tape a huge heavy mirror on my wall and It’s still stuck to the wall. I’ve had it for about 2 years now and it never falls. I think a small pot plant would be fine and it wouldn’t fall. But heavy books could potentially loosen them so you should test it out with a light book first.
I'm familiar with the bubble, Morty. I also dabble in precision, and if you think you can even approach it with your sad, naked, caveman eyeball and a bubble of air, you're the reason this species is a failure, and it makes me angry!
No drilling...no nails...logic: "because it causes some damage to the walls..."...rather attach it to the wall with strong-AF glue.. .. .. Then try take that motherfckr off without damaging the wall(or at least the paint),which you will anyway need to fix afterwards...
Just get a matched quart of paint at Home Depot and a small container of joint compound. When your ready to leave the apartment repair it yourself. If you have hardwood floors, these could potentially fall off and damage the flooring, and that is a much harder and more expensive fix. Plus you will have extra paint around if you need to touch things up for peace of mind.
This seems like a nice idea and never thought of it. Just moved into an apartment and there is no holes that can be put in the wall so no nails. Back in 2015 I went to Japan but ended up getting a good amount of figurines when I went to the arcade when it started raining when I had no coat or umbrella. Now that I have my own place I have been thinking about displaying them just for the hell of it. This may work for my project as the figures are not that heavy and there is only 4 small ones and 3 normal size ones.
I just talked to my landlord and I guess I am allowed to use small nails but nothing as big as a screw and such. Don't know if it would be ideal but might go that way now but will give it a look into now. But thanks for the alternate idea just incase my current one fails.
Definitely give it a try. Ideally, just use nails if you're allowed to. I don't like to drill or nail things on walls so the 3M command stuff works for me. But I don't put heavy things. Check out my 1 year update video showing it's still up.
Couple of things don't make sense.
1) How do you get it off? Doesn't seem possible to pull on the strips to release the glue. Also doesn't seem possible to detach the heavy duty velcro from 2 mounted surfaces which are perpendicular to each other
2) If it's not possible to release the strips or detach the velcro, why not just 3M heavy duty double sided tape?
A couple of warnings:
1) I ordered the shelves from the link and they look exactly the same, EXCEPT that the side meant for mounting does not have the area in the middle that would be flush with the wall as in the video. I.e., the entire side is recessed and there's nowhere to put the command strips that would be flush with the wall. I guess they changed the design. So the easiest options are to use hardware or expose the ugly mounting side to the world.
2) Make sure your corner is 90 degrees. If both sides can't be flush with the walls then you're going to have a bad time. Many apartments and buildings have walls that are not quite at 90 degrees.
I realized this too. If you have a 3d printer you can design a corner piece to fix both the problems by re-adding the removed middle portion of the shelf then adding a bit of chamfer so if your walls are not perfectly at 90 degrees you can add a few degrees.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
