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

Description:
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.
