Wall Covering Suggestions?

Before Amy closed up our house in Texas and moved up to Seattle, I painted the room that was to be her office a purple color below the chair rail molding that is about half way up the wall.

Now, I'm not to hip on purple but Amy loves it and it was to be her room and she was doing all this work back in Texas getting us ready to move, so I decided to paint the room with her favorite color.

Well, now that she is gone and that room is empty, I'd like to convert it to a meditation room where I can shut the door and not have the cats rubbing up against me purring while I'm trying to meditate.

I'm just not up for painting the walls again or putting up wall paper, so I've been thinking of finding some other kind of wall covering that I could tack up on the walls.

I've thought about sheets of bamboo cut to size or fabric. Do y'all have any suggestions for a cheap, easy-to-do wall covering solution?

P.S. Check out the new song of the week on my side bar, She Let Herself Go by George Strait. It is much more empowering then the two songs I had up before.

I think it would be better to paint the room. It might be work, but perhaps you can recruit some of us gals from knit night to help you out (I'll just go to get high on the paint, hahahha)

Nah, on a serious note, I think it would be good to have a fresh new coat of paint on the walls so that you have a clean slate with that room to really make it your own.

I love the thought of a meditation room. I'd kill to have a room to myself to try to get myself back into doing yoga regularly again :) I picture a soft green colour on the walls to bring a calm and serene feel to the room.

I saw a Trading Spaces where they glued hay to the walls. It made the girl that owned the place cry.
I agree that painting is probably best, especially if you can recruit friend to help.
If it's only one wall that was painted, you could hang up a cool tapestry to hide it until you're ready to paint.

I'll paint it for you! I enjoy painting... let set up a time and we'll get it done. All you have to do is buy the paint and roller covers!
