    Love the Painter theme, but I want to change the "pebble" background (or is this the "breadcrumb" that I see in the code?) to another color, say, plain ole blue. How do I do this?

    I'm not talking about the content within the boxes, but the main background (the part with the whitish/pebbly background

    If you're referring to this:
    http://brewman.net/wp-content/themes/painter/img/bg/background.png

    Go to your stylesheet:
    http://brewman.net/wp-content/themes/painter/css/style.css

    Locate:

    html {
        font:normal 12px Arial, Helvetica;
        background:url(../img/bg/background.png) repeat !important;
    }

    and change background.png to whatever you want :)

    When I click on my stylesheet it says

    *

    ...this continues for a few more lines, more legalese, but no option like what you linked to

    That would be http://brewman.net/wp-content/themes/painter/style.css the stylesheet is located in css/ folder:

    http://brewman.net/wp-content/themes/painter/css/style.css if you don't have the FTP access, or don't know how to access this, simply add:

    html {
        font:normal 12px Arial, Helvetica;
        background:url(../img/bg/background.png) repeat !important;
    }

    to the above style.css you just showed me and change this to whatever you need. That will overwrite the other background property.

    I have tried to plug this into my style.css and it doesn't work. I also tried another code and that didn't work either.
