Materials: NORRLIDA frame, various IKEA hex keys, glue
Description: So we had tons of hex keys of every kind after furnishing our new apartment with IKEA products. I didn’t want to throw them away, so as a minor hack, I created this picture. 1. Remove the glass from the frame. 2. Glue the keys to the white side of the mat. 3. Done. (Of course, the hardest part is to find the right layout of the keys. I can’t provide any instructions about that since everyone has different sets of leftover keys.)
