I took an Ikea cabinet and did this to it. It’s Dark brown.. but so dark it’s practically black.

To add to this thread, since it's the top hit on google when searching for an electronics cabinet to match the RSR's - here is the brand new IKEA EKET Wall cabinet that has a glass door. Looks supper snazzy and you'll be able to see which of your APEX switches are on through the glass! Hoping to pick one up soon.

Although not the referenced Petco Imagitarium cabinet the concept is the same. This is where a drill, a pocket jig and some wood glue really come in handy. I used 3/4 inch plywood to make a controller board that inserts inside of my Amazon glass door cabinet. I painted the controller board with gloss acrylic paint. Hope this helps! :)

Looks great. I wanted to do the same thing. I bought a bio cube stand and moded it

Awesome! How closely does the Biocube's stand match the paint on the RSR? I have a black 250 coming in a few days and I can't make a decision on what I want to use for my extra storage/electronics cabinet.
