Hey guys and dolls,
Just wanted to re-express the coolness that is the search button. Leah has all sorts of options in the advanced settings. I know that a big question is what to do when you cant paint your walls so I am going to try and get a popular link section going.
Thanks! AND USE THE SEARCH BEFORE YOU POST Grin

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

A lot of these suggestion threads talk about covering the walls with fabric. I haven't been able to find a pic of a room that's had this done; anyone got a finished product I can check out?

I am afraid that many of those posts are old and the pictures are broken.  I was wondering if anyone knew of any examples of a before/after not painted but starched wall?  I would like to see a finished product but can't find any examples.

This is a great post, thank you retroeva!  I was wondering if anyone has used the starch/fabric wall in the bathroom...  I am all set to try it, as in my current bathroom I have 3 pink walls and one black wall with ceiling sparkle... sounds cute, and when I came up with the idea I was on cloud 9... however a year later I want to cry when I look at it... not so cute... anyways, I have fabulous repro barkcloth that I want to hang in there over it, but am concerned that the moisture from the bathroom will loosen the starch... anyone do it in the bathroom?? Many thanks again!!!
