    Here is the site that I am working on:

    http://www.bigbrotherapparel.com/ Site is through Big Cartel with the Moda Theme.

    We are trying to fill in the white border that you see with a white filling, so that our text can go over it. However, the developer of the theme told me I was better off wrapping the whole site in a DIV and styling it with a background color. I am unsure how to do this.

    TL;DR I need a white layer in between the background and the text.

    Thank you in advance! (My coding skills are little to none.)

    I wouldn’t bother. I’d remove the background-image from the body, make the background color white and add the bg image to html.

    at the end of your style sheet is this:

    body {
    background-image: url("http://db.tt/XsZoAXws");
    }

    simply change it to this:

    html {
    background-image: url("http://db.tt/XsZoAXws");
    }

    earlier in the css the body has a white background. You’ll also need to change some of the text color (currently white also).
