I love reusing stuff that's been thrown out. Yes it's more work but at least there's less landfill!Materials:
Old packing crates (I managed to find 3 large ones being thrown out).
Old Skirting Boards (Kick Boards)
Screws, Nails and Wood Glue
2 Pine (2x4's)
Wooden battens (for strengthening the structure).
3 Doors (again I found 3 doors being thrown out from the 1940's).
2 Door handles (I bought 8 old 1940's handles for $3 from Reverse Garbage
2 Door locks (these I used just for the springs).
Wood Stain (Cedar)
6 Hinges (Easy Hang they don't need rebating!).
LEDs (I bought a 5 metre length with a control unit from Jaycar for $149
Wallpaper (I used some old 1970s gold striped wallpaper which we picked up for $20, it was all mouldy and ragged edges!).
Gold spray paint
Sizing (this is like a latex glue which is perfect for hanging wallpaper).
Yellow Perspex (for the floor of the cupboard from Reverse Garbage
Router (I am in love with this machine, it does almost everything so easily!).
Circular Saw (or saw bench)
Sander (I used a belt sander)
Dremel (or some such)
