    Well, it's not new, it's actually very old...used by my hubby's grandmother, but it sure beats laying stuff out on the bed!

    Looks really different up on the wall than on the bed too. Enjoy!

    You remind me of how much I miss mine, I lost the wall space when we mounted the TV on the wall. I was trying to visualize some stuff this morning and your pic has inspired me to find another wall somewhere and get that puppy back up!!

    what space, all you need is a piece of batting hung on a wall with a couple of pins.

    Sorry, also meant to add looks good, and you'll get heaps of use from it.I also find taking pics on phone helps get some blocks and colors in perspective.

    You actually don't need a wall to have a design wall. I didn't have any wall space, so here's what I did.

    I had two cheepie bookcases from Target ($26 each) that were holding my 'stuff'. I put adhesive backed velcro spaced along the top. Then I put the other half of the adhesive velcro strips along the top of the fleece. When I need my design wall, I just stick the fabric up with the velcro pieces sticking together.

    This also serves the purpose of 'hiding' Grandma's stuff when my little grandsons come over. Out of sight, out of mind. So far, anyway!

    My husband made mine for me the very first time he came home and found "stuff laying all over the place!" :) I said "honey, I have to do this somewhere." And that is how my design wall came to be!

    Make one. I used a 4'x6' peice of 1inch styrofoam (not expensive and available at any Menards, Lowes, Home Depot, or other building supply store) and coverd it with a flannel sheet.
    I just pulled the sheet to the back and stuck pins in it at an angle. When I'm not using it I store it behind a chest of drawers. You can also use a plastic flannel backed tablecloth. Or you can make one with some large clips, two curtain rods, a folding cardboard cutting board (the kind used for clothing patterns) and a piece of flannel. When it's not in use simply take it apart and fold it up. Extend the curtain rods and clip the flannel and cardboard to them.

    If it was grandma's it's quite possible a sheet blanket. Those were made of thin flannel. Well, it probably wasn't thin when new but with the first wash they thin out rather quickly. It looks wonderful btw and you're going to wonder how you ever did without one.
