This cabinet fits the space perfectly; sometimes you just have to build something from scratch, but you can always make it look junky, right? :)
 
Nice and roomy, for homeschool books & supplies.
My favorite detail: the plumbers strap around the top and bottom.  This stuffs really cheap and easy to work with (and you can age it easily, too)!

I needed a cabinet for a particular space and couldn't find anything for years.  So I resorted to my former MO, before I discovered the joys of junking.  I went ahead and built the cabinet, but made sure it looked good and old.
