This tall cabinet adds storage and a casual country look to any room. The surprise is that it's so easy to make: You start with an unfinished bookcase--whatever size suits your purpose--and add a pair of ready-made louvered shutters. For this 7-foot-tall cabinet, 18-by-80 7/8-inch shutters were used. Shutters typically come in two styles: traditional, with 1 1/4-inch slats, and plantation, with 2 1/4-inch slats. The latter were selected because their scale fit this large unit. (Photo: Thomas J.
