Purple & Lime Hexagon and Room


In preparation for the coming school year I made this large hexagon shelf (out of 6 smaller hexagons) and painted my daughter's room in dark purple, lavender, and lime green. Needless to say, she was thrilled.

  • What a cool room makeover! Your daughter must have been thrilled! The lines on the wall turned out perfectly. You should be really proud of the final result!

    • Thanks. This project was a great joy working with my daughter too. She was thrilled to help, jumped right in using every tool listed (including the miter saw), and we had a great time. She learned tool safety and gained tremendous confidence. Wish we would've made it sooner. As far as the paint lines, I found that pulling the 3M tape before the paint completely dried at a 45 helped create a crisp line without bleeding or chipping (if paint dries). There was very little touch-up required.

  • Outstanding! How long did it take you?

    • It took about a week on and off. The easy part was cutting the beveled edges on the miter saw. Since this was my first time joining angled pieces, the first hexagon took a little longer. The challenge was keeping the anchored pieces from moving while securing two sides together. Edge gluing was useless, don't waste your time. I used brad nails and pocket holes then filled the holes with wood filler. Using 2 clamps on the edges helped so I could pin the pieces with brad nails. It took a bit of 'stepping' up the Kreg jig to maximize the grip of the pocket holes. Practice on scrap first. Someone told me to use drywall spackling in order to keep the filling cheap. I tried it and was not happy with the result as the area is too soft and easily scratched. Use wood filler or make your own filler with fine saw dust and glue--sand, prime, and paint. To make the honeycomb, I joined 2 hexagons together at a time using clamps and wood screws through the opposite side shelf and finally the set of 2 together (there is no center hexagon piece. My daughter absolutely loves the shelf and helped me with every step. She actually did everything to make her own hexagon!
