Our basement needed some extra storage so I built these cabinets out of pine. Able to hide all the kid’s toys in them. Wall treatment is rescued pine boards from a house that was being torn down. I prefered the brown side instead of the gray side in this case. The countertop is just painted plywood, is I had always wanted it white to showcase the wood around it. Took some time to build, but very pleased with the result.

Looks inviting. I like the contrast of the brown wood and white. Nice job!

It looks great! I love wide boards, and those have gotta take the prize. Just how wide are they?

Thanks for the comments. The boards ranged in width from 12” up to 18”. I did have one board 20” wide, but it was cupped to much to use in one piece. The drawers are 36” wide, so that can give you a bit of a reference point.
