This idea came from a similar, much larger, cabinet a friend made. Mine is 18" w X 31" h X 9.5" d and is built from an old window I got from a friend and some scrap boards and plywood pieces from our stash in the shop. I used some old hinges from another piece I had redone, and I purchased a glass knob and a hook closure. Not shown in the pic are the feet I attached to the bottom corners. They were some large wooden beads I had lying around.  I actually made two of these cabinets. I painted the other one yellow and in it I replaced the glass with screenwire. My favorite part of these is the gorgeous old aligator paint on the windows.

Thanks for sharing.
