Ideas for Unusually Shaped Kitchen Cupboard?

Good Questions

Q: My partner and I just moved into a post-war house with some interesting characteristics, including this tiny cupboard in our kitchen. It's about 5 feet high and 5 inches wide. We assume it was for an ironing board (a really skinny ironing board, maybe just to do sleeves, hehe).

We probably could find an antique ironing board to fit into it, but we feel that it was meant for a much greater purpose. Any suggestions? PS: Spice rack is not a greater purpose than ironing board cupboard.
