If you know me at all, you know that I will never pay full price for anything that I can get a discount on, anywhere.
I have 2 white cabinets, got them at an auction a few years ago, still in box, to be put together, for $12.00.
Yes, I know that was a huge bargain, if you'll go to Lowes or Home Depot and look, you will find they sell for over $100 each...
Now the cabinets need a top...
Anyway, I was gifted a large amount of tile, and
my thoughts are to put tile on the top, but first I needed some
Hardibacker, to glue the tile to, so off I go to Lowes.
I don't need full sheets, so I start digging in the damaged
stuff, and found a sheet with corner off. I asked the sales clerk what they would discount it to, he said $5.00, I'll take it.
And he said he would sell me the 2 sheets that were broken in half for $2.00 each..
SOLD! for $9.00 I just $33.00 of Hardibacker, enough to do the two cabinets, and plenty left over, for more projects.
I promise to do a photo blog soon, with working on the cabinet tops.
