I had a lot of fun on the 4th at the flea market down at our local antique store. One of my purchases was this Atwater Kent radio cabinet, Model 70 from 1930. It was pretty dusty, had some mismatched shelves wedged in (the radio guts were gone), and had a banged up piece of particle board attached to the back.
And . . . TA-DA! Here it is now! J picked out the paint color (she is so good at that!) and the paint really transformed it. I didn't put a back on it at this point because it could be used with the front or the backside facing out--they both look nice. I think it'd be great for so many purposes--book shelves, a liquor cabinet, a "cabinet of curiosities", bathroom towels, fabric storage, doll house, or a dog bed (Pip's idea).
