I bought an old art deco-style stereo cabinet from a friend, who had already removed the components and painted it black. The back was open, so I made a plywood back and added mirrors on the shelves and had a piece of glass cut for the opening in the front. I then installed rope lighting and painted the exterior silver. It made a groovy, one-of-a-kind lighted cabinet for my vintage barware.
