Rebecca sent us an email: Recently I've been really excited about the range of paper wall murals that are cropping up in the design world. I'm toying with making my own photo mural to fill a 4.5"x15" (tall, I know!) wall near my entryway.

I've found an online resource that can scale an image for me, and I can print out on my own printer (thanks, rasterbator)! The catch is that I have a fear of using wallpaper paste to put it up. I don't own the unit I live in and I would hate to have a huge mess on my hands when I move out...

...Has anyone tried to adhere paper (temporarily) to a wall with spray mount, the "re-positional" or removable kind? This seems like a fairly simple solution, but perhaps too simple?

Please let Rebecca know if you have given Spray Mount a try for wall art and if so, would you recommend it? Other ideas for the project are also welcome...thanks!
