Re: What happens when you don't have a plan.

Thanks. I am definitely keeping costs as low as I can. I'd love to do a ton more. I find that doing it on the cheap is part of the fun. I think I have $200 into the new cabinets which was a big...

Re: What happens when you don't have a plan.

Plan was to create the cabinets found in the Home Handyman magazine. Attach 2x2 strips to the studs, attach plywood to those, join it all together with 2x2s. Could not bite the bullet for the 3/4...

Re: Anyone else list items on CL with a firm price?
