It finally came today, it looks good but it is not the static cling type vinyl decal I thought it was. It is adhesion backed sticker.  So, I am bit sad. I just did not take the backing off and I used magnets to hold it on the fridge instead.  I had planned to stick it to my wood cabinet when I thought it was a static decal. Oh well.  That fedxsmart post was really dumb.  Anyway it is very cool looking.

The tshirt is a really cool idea. I will have to look into it.

Maybe you can figure a way to hang it without damaging the wall.  How big is it?  Can you get a large cheap frame for it?

13x16 frame idea would be great put my problem is my kitchen has no wall space. That is why I was going to put the cling decal on my cabinet above the espresso machine and it would not hurt the wood when removed.  My cabinets are plain slab fronts.  So the side of the fridge nearest to the espresso machine is where it goes.  Will not be seen as well but anyway I know where to look.  

I can't wait to hear about your espresso machine.  Mine in parts on the table is depressing me.  I hope I will get my parts soon as they are only coming from one state over and maybe I will have espresso by the weekend.
