I made a shelving unit from cardboard

I made the shelving for the cardboard furniture online course. I wanted another example of a large piece of furniture that would also be useful to most users – the kind of piece of furniture that they would want to make because there is always something to do with it.
So I found a corner of the house that needed a storage solution, and I made it in the dimensions I wanted.

I made it for the course, but I fell in love with it. It turned out so cute with that coloring

Here are some photos from the process:
