For a temporary fabric wall try this solution used by Service wives who have to move a lot. Soak sheets in liquid starch and wring out then use a squeegee to paste them on the wall. It will stick and dry. When you want to move and take it with you just loosen and edge and peel off.
I've never tried this myself, just going on what I remember that they told me when I worked in a fabric store in the 80's. Would like to see some handy hints about it from someone who has done it.
That looks great, nice job. :)

I bought a piece of material at WalMart that has the 23rd Psalm on it. The piece measures 33 inches wide by 42 inches long. I want to make a wall hanging out of it but I am not sure how. What I would really like to do is to stretch it across and tack it to the frame so it is tight and the words and the picture stand out. I know that if I could do this it would make a beautiful, but inexpensive wall hanging. Has anybody out there ever done this? Would you share your method with me?
