Cabinet curb find

A little while ago I came across this beauty-find sitting in the rain, on a curb:
What am I going to do with this you ask? Well, for starters I will be removing the ugly hardware (all of it), and likely taking out the middle wood panels of the doors and replacing them with wire mesh or glass. Then there is an option of putting it on legs to add a little oomph. I'm thinking I will use it as a liquor cabinet in our dining room. Any other thoughts?  It will probably take me a while to get to this project so keep your ideas coming!

In the meantime, here are some of my inspiration pics for this project:

Great find i know you'll do something fab with it Heather. I vote for the wire mesh on it! Probably more cost effective, but will still look great! :)
