Do You Live in an Apartment or Rent and want to change your room decor but can't paint or hang anything?
Here is one method to do that and not mar the walls.
This is a method that I came up with for a friend that has an apartment and wanted to have the walls a different color. Most apartment owners will not allow you to paint the walls or hang anything on the walls. I gave my friend this idea...Measure the wall of the room in which you want to paint. I gave my friend a suggestion to only go halfway up the wall--like wainscoting does.

Get some 1x2's or furring strips. Make two sides-- the sides of the walls in the height that you want the wall to go up to. Then cut or place the bottom and top furring strips so that the sides fit snug against the sides of the wall. This way you will not have to use any screws or anything to attach to the walls and no holes in the wall. This can all be taken down when you move or would like to change the color or pattern. Use "L" brackets on all sides to stabilize the corners and make it square.
Go to the store and get a sheet set that you like that would look nice on your walls. Be creative and not only see the sheet for beds. Visualize what it would look like on your walls.
Get white or off white sheets and make them like your canvas. You can paint scenery on them or anything that you wish.
Use the fitted sheet for another wall or cut smaller for accents like in a picture frame. You can decoupage the material on things as accent pieces. The pillow cases can be used for window treatments, or they can be wrapped around accent pillows on your couch. Use your imagination.
You CAN have it the way that you want. It's up to you and your imagination.
