My neice is decorating her bedroom. There is a sports-themed border running around the top of the walls which she would like to cover up. Rather than trying to paint over it, we decided it would look cool to have a fabric strip for a border.
I started thinking that I could use something thin and light, like balsa wood or foamcore board, to staple the fabric to. Then we could nail the strips over the border.
I found thin planks of balsa wood on-line, but the were a little pricey. I couldn’t find foamcore board in 6" strips; it would have to be cut, and the pieces aren’t very long.
I’ve been trying to think of other stuff that might work. Should I get one piece of wood paneling and get hubby to rip it in 6" strips? Would cardboard be stiff enough?
What do y’all think?
BTW the room is 12’ x 13’.
