Well, it only took 10 months,
but I finally got my big design wall up!
In my previous sewing room, I put the design wall fabric directly on the wall and held it there with flat thumbtacks. Then I cut and mitered molding painted white to use as a frame around the fabric which covered the tacks.
That worked fine, except occasionally when I needed to pin something…YIKES!! Really hard to pin directly into wall board!
So this time, I did what my brilliant bee friends suggested and bought foam insulation sheets from Lowes and wrapped the fabric around the board, secured it on the back with duck tape, then mounted that on the wall.
But I was not happy with how the mitered corners matched… or should I say did NOT match up… sigh…
So, I made some fun dimensional flowers that looked very Mary Engelbreit-ish, like the rest of the room, to glue on to hide the ugly mitered corners.
Then I pinned up those quilt block window valances I made for my windows in there but later decided I did not like and took down …
The design wall is 5 feet tall by 6 feet wide, a foot shorter than the previuos one, but it would have had to touch the ceiling to be that big in this room because of the dresser!
But I am pleased how it looks there and glad it is finally up!! Yay!!
One more thing off my never ending list of things to get done!!
So how about you? How is your list coming along??
