I work at Menards (hardware store) – they were taking down a display that had 3 sheets of 4×8 particle board with this finished veneer on it. They were going to throw them all away and I was like…uh…I want them. They charged me $1 for all 3 sheets. So I made some simple furniture for my room. Nothing fancy, but you can’t beat that price!!! The black tubes on the desk and TV stand are nothing more than PVC pipe painted black. I cut a slot down the pipe to fit onto the desk. You can’t see it in the picture, but there is a horizontal piece on the back of the desk for some stability. The white stuff on the bottom of the TV stand is just the glue that is still wet – it went away!!! I also made a LARGE book shelf that is to the ceiling, but can’t find the picture. I will probably upgrade to something better than these soon – built these when I moved to a new town and didnt have any furniture (or money!!!)
