I have two walls in my spare (computer) room that are cork board squares from ceiling to chair rail. I really like these and use them quite a bit. However, they are DARK cork board and I would like that room to double as a guest bedroom.

I thought about painting the cork but decided against that as I fear it would suck up all the paint and would crack/chip when I stick pins in it.

My next idea was to cover the walls in fabric - either fabric panels attached to firring strips or fabric attached right to the cork at the wall perimeters (so I could change the fabric when needed). I was thinking I would need a loose thread count so that pushpin holes wouldn't be evident.

Looking for advice to either proceed or abandon, other ideas, etc....thanks!

How about a cross stich frabric with ribben criss/crossed like the new fancy bulletin boards seen in the stores like Burlington, Ross, and Steinmart?
