Temporary Wall Decor

If you live in a rental place that doesn't allow painting or if you just don't want to paint, try materializing a wall. Pour some Stayflo (liquid blue clothing starch) in a bucket and soak a sheet or material. Squeeze it a little and smooth onto your wall. It will dry just like wallpaper. If you get tired of it, just use your fingernail to pick a corner. Wash it and it will be soft again and not ruined. The wall will be just as it was before.

What a GREAT idea. Will the "bluing" turn the cloth kinda blue?

This is what happened to a friend of mine. She had a Big Cockatoo that had chewed the bottom half of her wall board all the way around the room. The land lord called and was going in for inspection. she called me and I had seen on a show you use liquid softener it wasn't blue, anyhow dipped the floral material in a bowl with the softener squeezed an stuck to wall kinda pleated it,then got a trim board and tacked on top all the way around the room..Looked great an the landlord wasn't the wiser, at least this gave her time to re wall the areas..
