Does anybody have any ideas for doing the wall grid color blocks with plywood or something else than painting?... It might be interesting to have a quick change ability if you could build them and affix them on the wall...

I thought of the same thing.  I have seen on a few shows where they cover plywood with batting and fabric (HGTV).  I think you could also use good chipboard or book binding board covered in fabric (no batting) and adhere to the wall with Velcro.

Even something like this but on a smaller scale.  It depends on what you are looking for.

Hmmm....I like the wood frame idea, that makes it lighter and easier to hang up and change around.

VERY cool idea!  The possibilities are basically endless with all of the fabric available to us.  You could change the wall with the seasons even!

Thank you so much! Smiley

Aw, he did help. Cheesy  He just wouldn't go anywhere near the checkered wall of death, haha!  He did the main wall painting, setup the crib, did the cabling on the shelving annnnd installed the ceiling fixture.  He looooves the PaintMate!  It's seriously one of the best inventions ever, I believe.  http://www.wagnerspraytech.com/portal/paintmate_plus_spray,41922,747.html

Oh I didn't mean anything derogatory.  I simply meant by "Daddy help"  that sometimes they get this "look" or have some very "helpful" comments such as  "I thought it was really easy."  when he wouldn't touch that wall with a ten foot paint stick.lol.  Gotta love em'.  I had no doubt he had a large hand in getting this wonderful room ready.  That paint brush thing is nothing short of genious!!! Wish that would work here, our paint is like water.
All in all a beautiful room that he can grow up in for years to come.  I bet you change it before he grows out of it.lol.  Love the little innovations like the bumper thing for a valance.

Hehe, I figured that's what you meant!  I just realized I should totally give him (and the paint stick, haha!) some more credit.  He definitely would not go anywhere near that wall.  I think it was referred to as the "wall of the devil" at some point. Cheesy  It really wasn't bad, though.  It just took lots of patience and painter's tape!

The painter's stick thingie is totally awesome, but you're right, it probably wouldn't work very well with super thin paint.  It might splatter?  Though, if you can use the paint with a regular roller, I bet you could use it with this, too.  Maybe just roll sloooowly... Wink

Lol.  That wall looks like a lot of Planning, patience and tape.lol.  But everything is so worth it.  It's such an incredible outcome.  There are the little things like thinking outside the box a little with things like the head bumper for a valance, the shelving, etc.
Haha, with that incredible paint stick,  I don't think I'd even get to the splatter stage.  it would start running out the second I raised it I think.  Oh well. I get to paint whenever I visit my sister so I'll keep that in mind next time I go.lol.
Maybe just roll sloooowly...  lol.  Liked that.  I don't know what slow is really. lol.

I know EXACTLY which picture you are referencing on Flickr. I drooled over this nursery while I was pregnant.   Unfortunately, my water broke two months early.  We raced to finish the nursery.  While I still love how it turned out, deep down, I'm gonna be jealous of you for awhile.  Tongue

But you did inspire me to post about our nursery redo, although it feels second place and nowhere near as awesome.
