I have been trying for several years to come up with a design wall that would not leaves holes in the wall and not mar any surfaces.
It also had to be lightweight and would not have to take up a lot of space when stored.
I got an idea recently and have completed it.
It meets my criteria and will be a big help as I create new work or finish work in progress.
The idea started with a bracket I hang over a door in my laundry room to hang clothing to dry.
We have double doors between the master bedroom and master bath.
I figured if I got two of these hooks I could space them close to the outer edges of the doors and hang a design wall from them.
I had saved an old shower curtain rod that was a sturdy metal rod and it fit the hooks on the brackets perfectly and was also the correct length.
I also had a 2 yard piece of 60" wide white felt.
I simply stitched a casing at the top of the felt. I left a 2 1/2 inch opening in the casing in the spot where it would slip over each bracket. I also stitched a narrower casing in the lower edge to slip in a curtain tension rod I had.
I slid the shower rod in the top casing and hung it over the brackets.
I inserted the tension rod in the lower casing to help it hang better.
I have the benefit of the felt which will hold small pieces on while I arrange things and make decisions without pinning. When things become heavier I can pin to the felt.
Here you see the design wall with a work in progress pinned to it.
When I want to take this down, all I have to do is take it off the brackets and roll it up to store it. I also have to take the brackets off the doors so they do not damage the walls when I open the doors.
The downside is we can't use the bathroom while it is hanging there. Not a problem as there is another bathroom.
The more serious downside is the master closet is entered through the master bathroom!
I do have the option of pinning everything to the wall and then rolling it up.
I am trying to come up with another solution which will allow me to take it down without pinning each and every piece.
