what to coat the logs of my house with before I cover them up 18 Replies

Adhesive wall hanging hardware

There is already a plethora of holes and nails and screws in the wrong places in our home. Does anyone use 3m brand hangers or something else that removes easily for hanging things on log walls instead of the more damaging hardware like nails and screws?
