Have you ever thought decorating your kids’ rooms with cardboard? NO? Well, you should. I was so inspired and overwhelmed by the amazing cardboard furniture for kids made by artists and regular parents, like you and me.

Keep in mind, some of these projects require special tools and extra time. Like lots of time. But some of them you can try making yourself. Tutorials provide free printable patterns for furniture or decor pieces. Good luck!
