I'm feeding a friend's cat at the moment, which gives me the excuse to go out every day. Yesterday I decided to pop into Bunnings while I was out, and get the back wall cut for my HBS Creatin Contest hack.
Being the frugal lass that I am, I headed to the scrap bins at the back of the timber area (via the paint mistint display) to see if I could save buying a complete piece of MDF just to get a smallish corner cut from it.
I was in luck: I pulled out not only a perfect piece to get cut down* for the back wall, but another piece that looks like a good solution for the front wall.The total cost?
$1.01 for the test pot mistint (a lovely french blue colour).$1 for making two cuts in the MDF.
And nothing for the pieces of MDF, which would have been thrown out had I not wanted them.
(*Yes, I know I have a saw at home, but I wanted the cuts to be straight).
