A Cheap Replacement for Expensive Wood

The one thign that has prevented me from doing any home improvement projects is the sheer cost of the items that I usually have to get before being able to do anything at all. Most of the items are prohibitively expensive and if something goes wrong during the project itself, I am going to have to have those items replaced which only increases the cost of the project itself. Thankfully I was able to find black melamine board which allowed me to replace most of the shelving units that are in our home.
