It's about 5' long, 2' tall, and 1' deep.


Here's what it looked like when I got it...

I replaced some wood and changed its configuration so it actually lays on its side now.
Painted it, cut a couple holes, and added some 4" ducting with a 4" 80cfm inline duct booster fan for an exhaust. $25 for the fan at Home Depot.
It also has two single 2' T-5 lights in it now.

The lights mount on the back wall of the cabinet. At the top.

No prob!
It's pretty easy to turn an old piece of furniture such as a cabinet, dresser, or armoire into viable grow space. :)



Those booster fans start wearing out and making a bunch of noise too fast though ....or at least mine did. If noise is a big issue for you, plan on replacing it every 6 months or so. Or maybe mine wore out faster from gravity and inertia because it's mounted vertically instead of horizontally?

Yes it was. Someone else's homemade gun cabinet, I do believe. :)
