When you think of T-Pins what do you think of? I asked this question to my wife and she basically said that they are used in upholstery and tailoring to hold fabric in place before it is sewn.
She does a lot of work making drapes and upholstering chairs and uses T-Pins for those applications. Well, believe it or not, T-Pins also are awesome when it comes to hanging anything from a cubicle wall! Don’t miss my YouTube Video below!
They hold securely into the fabric cubicle wall (especially if you tilt them slightly) and, as a result, you can hang almost any picture frame, even one with some weight to it. As you can see in the images below, I use T-Pins to hang pictures that I have picked up from my travels.
Here’s a quick YouTube video of me hanging a calendar, sign, and a poster in my office:

The picture in the image below I picked up in Amsterdam when I visited the Netherlands many years ago. You don’t have to limit yourself to picture frames. You could hang a sign, a clipboard, a calendar, a poster, or any type of wall hanging you would have in your home.
If you want to create your own backsplash in your office, T-Pins would work great to hold up your fabric. I picked up a box of 100 Gem 1.5 Inch T-Pins for less than $5 and I’m pretty sure I’ll never go through all of them. I keep them in a drawer next to my desk and can use them to basically hang anything.

So, if you are looking for a great solution for hanging anything on a cubicle wall, a box of T-Pins should probably last you a work lifetime! They will also give you the option of hanging up some fabric to cover up those drab and ugly grey walls. If you don’t like them (which I highly doubt), you can always use them for your new drapes or give them to your wife. 🙂
