These are the original cabinets that were built with the house in 1971. They had small drawers at the top and 2 shelves. They weren't very efficient storage. I pulled everything out of the cabinet, pulled off the facing (euro-style) and restructured them to have full size pull out trash and 6 nice large heavy duty drawers. The drawer fronts I made from alder wood based on a design I saw online.
