I rent an apartment and am not allowed to do anything to the walls. That said, I would love to put up a border on the wall - anyone know of any creative ways to go about doing this that would not make it permanent (special tape, etc) that wouldn't make it look horrible?
We just have white walls. We were told we weren't allowed to paint - even if we put it back to its original color before we leave. I was also told that it can be really hard to get wall borders off? That makes me nervous if we were to move because moving is so hard by itself without having to worry about restoring walls. Is there some kind of alternative glue or tape I could put on the back of the border to put it up with that would come off super easy?
The theme is in that link I attached in the first post...
At Walmart they have these borders that are removable-no glue, no tape etc. We were going to use them because we are renting to, but now we are moving so we aren't worry about that. Try having a look around at specialty stores that deal with borders/paint/etc.
I was going to suggest the already sticky border as well. We used one in my oldest son's nursery in an apartment and it was like a giant sticker, peeled off no problems.
Or just the wallies.
Otherwise, I would just use pictures and peg hooks, other deco.'s like that.

As long as the walls are not plaster or heavy textured, double stick tape should hold decently. It's just clear tape that is sticky on both sides. I'd place it on the border itself then be sure to pencil mark the straight line on the wall. You should be able to stick it up easily. Space one inch strips about every six inches on the border at the top and offset on the bottom.
