Empty... not that I don't have anything to do - I finished the Atkinson Designs Fire Escape and haven't put back up any of the two other projects I had removed - they are still considered "in the works" though.
But I thought it would be a good time to show you what my design wall is made of.
My wall is made up of 3 panels of 1 1/2 inch insulation board I picked up at Home Depot. The panels are 2 feet wide and were 8 foot long - I cut them down to 6 foot. They are marked as 'basement wall insulation system'... they have this notch in them that runs the length to fit over the wall studs. When I butt them together I use a large binder clip to hold them at the top and (sometimes) bottom.
Two of them I covered with some white felt I had and the third panel I used a piece of leftover cotton batting. Not sure which I think works best... they both seem to hold on to everything I put up. You could also use the back side of a vinyl table cloth.
On two of these panels I used a staple gun to hold the felt in place and on the third I used double sided carpet tape.
I think the double sided carpet tape works the best - the staples fall out and you have to use a bazillion of them to hold. Which is why I switched to the tape - I ran out of staples. Put the tape on the back side of the board and wrap your batting or felt around and secure. Personally I like the cloth tape the best - but the paper tape will work as well - just make sure it's "double sided carpet tape".
One of these days I'll redo the ones with staples... someday when I don't have anything else to do... or all the staples have fallen out. LOL
I like these units because they are portable, lightweight, very rigid/durable, and with each being 2 ft wide I can move them around easily. I'd actually like to get 2 more in the future... you know - some day when I don't have anything else to do!
