    Mine is push pinned to the wall. Not everything stays on tho' so sometimes I have to pin the pieces on. Nothing fancy at all but it serves it's purpose.

    I just have a large jpiece of flannel stapled to the top of the wall in my sewing room. It's been there for years, and works great.

    Here's a neat tutorial for a large design wall: http://sewmanyways.blogspot.com/2009...-tutorial.html

    She also has a tutorial for a smaller version.

    My friend uses car ceiling liner for her design wall at the store. I'm telling you it works great, but like many of you I have a ceiling fan. I'm going to buy some from her just to try on an insulation board and see if it works well with the ceiling fan.

    Love the ideas here!

    I have the styrofoam design wall. It's wonderful. I do a lot of dressmaking, so I pin other things to it, too - patterns and fabric sketches, for example, and measurements and pictures drawn by my granddaughter. I used a soft cotton fabric, heavier than calico, but woven like a jacquard. I stapled it to the back, like re-covering a kitchen chair seat. DH attached it with those nails that have the washer in front, so it won't come off.

    My fabric cover is not quite opaque enough to hide the bright pink of the insulation! I deliberately chose a messy picture of it. :wink: At least the rest of the room is fairly clean.

    Because I sell quilts, I can also use this as a backdrop and position the quilts smoothly for photographing.

    Oh you are good to get them at a thrift store for .50 each! Hats off to you and I thought my $5.00 was a bargain! Still happy with it, I put mine up with thumb tacks, holds just fine and since my wallpaper is already busy, no one will notice if I choose to take it down. When I do, I will replace that wallpaper, it is a bit dated, but in a sewing room who cares. Makes it easy to use thumb tacks and whatever!

    I have two, one black and one white, and I LOVE them. I wrote up detailed instructions, including the pitfalls I ran into and the specific materials used on my Flicker photo here:
