Ever since I was a kid I’ve always had this fascination with cardboard boxes.I just refused to throw them away.I remember I made an entire kitchen from cardboard boxes once — a fridge,an oven and all the cupboards.My mom would joke about my obsession with junk stuff but she would always be surprized at how good my creations came out.

Today I still refuse to throw cardboard boxes away.They have recently piled up in my balcony so I’ve decided to utilize them.

In this Instructable I will be showing you something more practical than a little girl’s kitchen — a hexagon shaped corkboard.Why hexagon you ask? Well there are a couple of reasons,one of them being that I’m a Pharmacy student and the hexagon shape is a huge part of my student life and I see it almost every day.The second reason is that I just love the way a hexagon looks on the wall.

This project is easy,practical and quick.

Here is all of the things you will need:

  • Cardboard boxes
  • Corkboard
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Wall adhesive of your choice
  • A pen
  • A sheet of paper
  • A ruler
