    This is great, in what kind of material your hubby made the board, my hubby started to paint my new hobbyroom so I'm still looking for ideas and this is great. I tought to cover a part of the wall with cork and use that as disign wall, what do you think would it work?

    He used 1/2" foam insulation board from Home Depot. I noticeyou are in Belgium, so I don't know what stores you would have. You should be able to get it at a store that sells construction materials. Cork would probably work, but it would be much heavier and probably more expensive. He used 2 pieces of 4' X 8' foam board at about $13 each. Good luck and feel free to pm me if you have any questions.

    I'm sure it will get a lot of use. Great project by your DH.
    A design wall is the one thing I don't have, but wish I did, no wall available.

    You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much fabric.

    Cindyg19 - I posted sewing room pics a day or 2 after this. I am not sure how to direct you to them. I will try to figure it out. If anyone else knows how to do it, I would welcome the help!

    This is a great idea! I"ve been waiting for Fons & Porter's design wall to go on sale.
