Hex everything. Because it’s trendy, right? Also because it’s just a great shape that fits together with its other hexagonal mates. I have hex floors in the bathroom, as well. And I just worked on some hex stools. Like I said before…hex everything.
So why not some hexagonal cork boards to fit a small awkward space above my desk?
These were pretty simple to make and cost me a whopping $4. Not too bad, right?
I used some cork tiles from the dollar store, a ruler and a utility knife, as you can see here:
I measured the hexagon shape and got to cutting. How do you measure a hexagon? Don’t ask me. I honestly still don’t know how I did it, but you can see a few ways to do it right here (my method was basically to freehand it).
I then cut it using the ruler and knife, then traced the shape onto the other tile boards, then cut those out. It’ s a good thing I had 4 tiles but only planned on using 3 since I totally butchered one of these. Yikes!
I simply nailed these onto the wall right under a shelf in the office. It’s a tight space that could use a little more interest than just a square board, so this does the trick nicely!
And there you have it! Such an easy project that can easily be completed during nap time (even the short half hour ones!).
They’re not perfect by any means, but I pretty much say that about all of my projects! Because it’s true! Thankfully once stuff is up on it, the imperfections become less obvious!
And there you have it. Another simple and quick DIY project you can tackle, which might just come in handy for some back to school projects this month! Whoa, did I just say back to school? Yeah… that’s happening, folks. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!
Before I go, I’d love to have you answer 7 quick little questions for me about the blog. I’m trying to make some changes and I really want to know what you guys like or don’t like about my little corner of the internet, so if you can please click here and do that for me, I’d be forever grateful!
Have a great week!
