So, design wall done. Used the insulation board technique which is posted everywhere.
Bought 3 - 24x96 x 1" insulation boards and covered them with batting. DUCT TAPE did not adhere to my insulation boards. Packing tape did not either. I staple gunned the batting to the boards and that seemed to do the trick.
COMMAND STRIPS DID NOT WORK. I tried 4, then I tried 12 in a row. The big strong 5 pound ones. Nadda.
Then I tried nailing nails into the wall and laying the board onto them - like sticking the styrofoam into the nails. Nada. Slid right down and ripped the styrofoam.
Then finally, I nailed the nails into the wall, through the boards. That seemed to do the trick, we'll see if they're still hanging in a few hours.
I bought these two Ikea dressers and we put them together back to back for a cutting table. It is a perfect height!
Next up is putting in fluorescent lighting - as you can see, I really need light down there.
My machine arrives next week sometime!
