Temporary Wall Covering

I can't stand the wood paneling in the front room of my house. I am renting, is there any way to cover the walls without doing any harm to the wood?

You could buy some inexpensive fabric and hang it on the walls using thumb tacks. The tacks will leave really small holes which should be nearly invisible.

You can also apply fabric (I use sheets) to walls with liquid starch. Just mix up the starch according to box or bottle directions for clothing, soak the fabric and then apply it to the walls. Smooth out all the wrinkles. when it dries it will look nice and when you get ready to move you scape loose a corner and pull. It comes off clean without damaging the walls. And the bonus is you get to reuse the fabric after a wash.

How does this work with hanging things like pictures and artwork over top of? Also what type of fabric do you use?
