    Someone suggested a great design wall that my husband could make for me. For the life of me, I cannot find this post. I have a question (not surprising). :cry:

    No, these were not it. I made one using fleece but material does not seem to stick very well. This post was using insulation board with batting. I wondered what kind of batting she used. Thanks for your help.

    Not sure what post your refering to but sound dampening board can be found at HW store for around $10-15 for a 4x8 sheet and if it is covered or painted can be used the same as cork board, at a much much lower price :)

    Well I can't find it either. lol but since it kinda drove me crazy that I couldn't find it I read about a million posts and it looks like Warm and Natural is the batting to use for a design wall. followed by flannel! Or you could just skip the covering and use pins as mentioned before to stick them up like you would on cork board!

    Sorry I too couldn't find the exact post you were refering to.

    I have a large piece of flannel attached to the wall. It's cheap and it works for me :)

    Yes, cotton of some kind, either batting, or even just flannel. Cotton fabric sticks to other cotton materials.

    I use the 1/2" blue color house insulation foam board; it comes in 8' x 4' panels from Lowes/Home Depot and can be nailed directly to your wall after covering with batting/flannel. Nail holes are less a concern to me than NOT having a design wall is!

    I use 2 pieces of 2x8 pink rigid insulation purchased at Lowes or Home Depot. They are tongue and groove on the long sides and I use duct tape to hold them together, this way if you don't have alot of room you can take them apart when not using them and they take less room. They don't have to be nailed to the wall, I just lean them against the wall.
    They can easily be moved anywhere they are so light. I covered mine with a cheap vinyle tablecloth felt side out, using the duct tape to hold it on or you can sew two tablecloths together and put it over the top like a pillowcase. I have been using mine now for well over a year and I love it. Also if you have a heavy quilt etc. you can use your pins to help hold it.

    Did you comment on the post or was it a thread you started yourself? Either way if you go up to My Profile on the top right hand corner of the page and click on it. This will bring you to your page and on the left side you can click on Lasted Posts or Lastest Threads and look back through them.

    I used a good quality felt to cover two 8 x 10 insulation boards. I used 1/4" staples to staple the boards to my wall. No biggie installation and no damaged walls. The staples make tiny holes that paint will cover. The best fabric I have used to hold fabric is headliner fabric used in the roof of cars.
    Got fabric?
