"New" is not really the correct description, maybe the word should be "re-purposed".
But, first let me explain.
After all of my reno work was completed I purchased a new TV credenza. It was an "assembly required" unit from a well known local furniture dealer. The salesman advised "if I could make toast, I could put this thing together, no tools are required, just slide this into that". YEAH!. Now, I am quite able to make toast and do a lot of other culinary things in the kitchen, however, I don't know what kind of toaster he meant for me to use, because this thing was not going to stand on its four legs, let alone hold a TV.
To make a long story short, I tried and tried, contemplated packing the $%&*@# thing up and shipping it back because I was so frustrated, then SIL came to the rescue, he knows how to make toast too, but it took the two of us to make a TV credenza.
Why does this have anything to do with a design wall? My Mum always says, "waste not, want not". So. The TV unit came packed in a box surrounded by sturdy foam sheets and cardboard. With Mum's advise echoing in my head, I used some construction strength adhesive, duck tape (what would we do without this stuff) and an old sheet, the result a 4ft X 5ft design wall. It's not the prettiest thing in my sewing room, but it can display some good looking quilting projects.
