Alternative Wallpaper

For us renters, there isn't always much we can do about our walls. Even painting a neutral color is a no-no to most landlords. Well, I was watching the Nate Berkus show the other day and he showed that you can actually use bed sheets as wallpaper. Who knew?!? Basically you 1. Clean the wall space 2. Spray the top quarter of the wall with heavy spray starch 3. Smooth on the sheet 4. Add some more starch ontop of it and tack it temporarily with a pin. 5. Complete process in sections. 6. Wait for one hour to remove pins and Voila!

I have never tried this before, but am really tempted on trying it for my entry wall. It isn't supposed to leave any damage and be easy to remove. I'm just nervous about the hems and edges. Have any of you tried or heard of this fancy trick?

**Still looking for the image of the foyer Nate did on his episode!
