Built-Ins

Can you believe this transformation, found over at Design Sponge?  Beth of Six Orange Carrots and her husband turned their unsightly closet into a beautiful built-in... for only $110!


They found a woman who was giving away a built-in on Craigslist for free, bought new handles on eBay for about $35, and bought drywall, drywall tape, drywall nails, and other various materials for the project for about $75.  


Aren't built-ins such a hit or miss feature in a home?  I've lived in some rentals with hideous built-ins and they quickly became the bain of my existence.  When done well, though, they can add the perfect amount of character and functionality to a space. 

P.S. I'm a little confused about the rainbows and disco ball... Please try to appreciate the built-in despite the poor surrounding design choices. 

P.P.S. Remember Simone's built-ins in her breakfast nook?  Another built-in I would love to recreate.
