    .widget {

    inside this CSS style add the background color and some padding. like below

    .widget {
        background-color: #ff0;
        clear: both;
        margin: 0 0 2.2em;
        padding: 10px;

    Thanks a lot WP Bum,

    I changed not only7 the color but the padding and margin also.

    It worked perfectly!

    I found this post as I was trying to do something similar. Two issues, (1) it also changed the footer which I need to have a different color
    (2) I would like the sidebar to stretch to the size of the page even if the sidebar has no content.

    Any thought?

    can I set it up so that I have an image in the background of the sidebar instead of just a color.
