So sorry! Losses are so hard, even worse when there is no clear explanation to help understand what happened.

For walls I got a bunch of bathroom type wall paneling (with the shiny, waterproof surface). I got 'left overs' from discontinued patterns, so it was about 1/3 the normal cost of the panels.

It is much easier to clean and actually I can hose it out when I want without problem.
