Some have been lucky to find a fabulous sideboard or credenza from a sale or off Craigslist, but for those who have come up empty handed, no despair, just make on yourself. This Old House walks us through a relatively simple process using stock cabinets (which can be found for super cheap at your local Re-Store).

This Old House is always supportive of doing things yourself, and why not when they can look as fabulous as this? For those looking to make something slightly more modern, choose a cabinet with flat fronts and appropriate hardware. Check your local Re-Store for cabinets and trim for literally just a few dollars. This Old House says this is what you'll need to get started:

• One sheet of ½-inch cabinet-grade birch plywood
• Three 18-inch base cabinets
• ½x1 lattice strips
• ¾ bed molding
• 1x3 furring strips
• ½x2 lattice strips
• Three push door latches
• Six knobs
• Four furniture feet
• Four corner foot plates
