  • 3mm MDF
  • 25mm baton wood planks.
  • Roof Felt tacks
  • Screws (I had 3mm x 30mm)
  • pin nails
  • Superglue (and activator)
  • PVA

 

I recently moved house and bought some fancy furniture. The MDF was legit packaging material and I found the thin wooden planks in the scrap bin at B&Q because it was warped 9 directions from Sunday.

So materials cost for me was zero but in reality you can do this for under £10
