kitchen backsplash in a rental

i am living in a rental, UGH, so anything i do needs to be “temporary” and cheap. i was going to just  buy a large piece of bead board, but those things are $30!! i’m broke. THEN i saw these 1″ x 2″ x 8′ boards for 92¢ each. SO, i’m gonna buy 13(cause that’s what i need) and screw them in(so they can be “screwed” out). the boards are all in different kinds of shape which i LOVE. i’m going to white wash them…
