Ikea throws (any that are stretchy), framing wood from hardware store, staple gun, small nails

If you live in an apartment, and you don't love white walls (or worse, as in our case, blech-tan), you can dramatically change them without painting (and getting in trouble with your landlord).

Step 1. Measure your wall. On graph paper, divide it into 4 quadrants (this assumes you are working in a standard sized bedroom, add quadrants as necessary for larger rooms).

Step 2. Determine the amount of wood you will need. Each quadrant will be framed, using 1/2" (or so), by 1/4" wood. So, there will be 16 pieces for a wall with outlets or oddities (more on that later). Basically, you will need 4 times the length of the wall in wood, and 4 times the height.
