We reused the carcasses in our utility room and just added new doors. Likewise in our dressing room. I also reused all the hinges. It saved resources and saved us a fortune. In my new bathroom I'm using an old sideboard from ebay to make a vanity unit for a fraction of the cost and in my bedroom I found an old 1920s desk to use as a dressing table. My favourite item though is an art deco glass fronted cabinet which I bought for £40 from ebay and which I'm converting into a cocktail cabinet for the dining room with a bit of elbow grease and some gold leaf.
