I also wanted to share an undertaking that Kim took on for her new home will she's in Tallahassee.  She took fabric (non Stampin' Up! I'm afraid) and used liquid starch to apply it to her walls.  This is a great idea for rental homes where you can't change anything.  It pulls right off and you just wipe down the walls.
Before - the wall was painted navy blue.

Most of the way finished.  Roll starch on the wall, then press the fabric down and roll starch over the fabric.    She used some thumb tacks to secure in place until dry.

The finished wall.  She has several 50's decorations from her last film, so that's the theme of the room.

Other side of finished wall - desk and crafting area.  

Here are a few more photos of her rental house.  Her other 3 roommates didn't bring a lot, and of course, Kim must travel with 2 full vehicles and a U-Haul full of furnishings, so we decorated the living/dining area with film posters and other paraphernalia.  Just fitting for 4 graduate students in the film department.

The much loved marquee we saved from an out of business video store and what better poster to have in it?
