Here's some pictures of my recent alteration to a bookcase I had hanging around.
I bought 4 painting canvases at the craft store and using some hinges, I attached them to a particle board bookcase I was using to store food in my pantry.  The new "doors" can easily be painted, since they are just canvas and are  light so the hinges can be pretty small.   My bookcase is 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide, so I used four 1 1/2 foot by 2 foot canvases.

That's ingenious.  It looks cool even without paint.

I want to make some to replace my ugly kitchen cabinets.  Do they stay closed easily?  I think I would need to install little magnets to keep the doors closed tight, since I'd want to keep moths out and the mess inside safely out of view.

I used magnets and the doors did stay shut when i put it together.  However, when I put it where I wanted to use it, the floor is VERY crooked and they no longer want to stay shut.  I installed a little latch and use those now.
