    I would like to change the color of the entire sidebar in my twenty ten theme blog. I have been able to change part of the border around the individual widget boxes, but not the overall background. Is this possible to achieve?? Thank you.

    This is something I'm trying to achieve also. If I find out, I'll let you know.

    If you go into the style.css file, you can change this line of code:

    #main .widget-area ul {
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
    border:0 solid #D1CFD2;
    margin-left:0;
    padding:20px;

    The #FFFFFF is the white background color that you see now. You could change that to #CCCCCC for grey, or anything you want.

    That change would look like this:

    #main .widget-area ul {
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #CCCCCC;
    border:0 solid #D1CFD2;
    margin-left:0;
    padding:20px;
