How to use "Cubby" in context?

In the United States, many people refer to a "cubby" as a small enclosed space within a larger room. They may be used for storage, such as a cabinet or closet, or for a child's play area. The word is derived from the early days of railroads, when crews running trains between cities would spend their nights in small, spartan sleeping quarters - nicknamed "cubbies" - that would typically have just enough room for a bed, a tight kitchen area, and a small private bathroom. Today, cubbies can be found in a variety of places, from an apartment's spare bedroom to a home's attic.
