    I've been trying to figure out a place in my sewing room - which is really a "sitting" room off the master bedroom - to put up a design wall. I have one wall that is all closets, one with my fabric storage shelves and a window, one with a window and a more storage I use for my books and drawers for notions, and the other is a half wall open to the bedroom. I finally decided I needed a portable design wall that I could use on my closet wall. The picture shows my solution: a no longer used flannel-backed tablecloth and two plastic pant hangers! I think I'll get a square tablecloth as mine is a bit long or even cut it down to size. When I'm done, I can fold the tablecloth and hang it inside the closet with the hangers so I'll know where to find it next time.

    Great idea. I may give this a try, as my sewing area does not a wall that will do for a design area.
