Dec 2016:  I did the same thing, except we would dump it on a tarp and I would rebuild it. I still have it, hidden behind the Lifetime tumbler. :-)

Here is my cheapskate compost bin. It is made from various leftover pieces of chicken wire and plastic hardware cloth. These are held up by bamboo and other poles. In addition to making compost in it, I use it to store lumpy and unfinished compost in which I grow potatoes (last year) and tomatoes (this year). It's ugly but it works.
