I've been spending more time in the "Studio" over the past couple weeks and decided that it's finally time to break down and make a bona fide design wall. I sent hubby to Home Depot on his day off so he could pick up a big foam board for me. What he brought home instead was 5 small panels, each 2 feet x 4 feet. I had been planning a floor to ceiling option on this main inside wall so decided I needed to go back and pick up 1 more to put them 3 high, 2 wide. But with the sewing table and bookcase I wouldn't be able to access the bottom panel.
So I started eyeing other walls and realized that behind the door was a wall a little over 4 ft wide. My original plan was 4 panels but discovered after the fact that the bottom panel would need to be cut to 18-19" which is too much trouble, so I put the 8th panel on the back of the door.
Because I lucked out on the flannel being 50% off and was able to use a 50% coupon for the spray adhesive, it turned out to only cost $12 per panel. ($2.85 per foam board, 1.5 yards fabric each @$2.99/yd.) The expensive items were the spray adhesive (normally $12) - but worth the cost. Be sure to buy "repositionable". And the hanging strips at $6 per package.
