Its finally done! My favorite thing I've ever redone! (so far)

I purchased this item last summer for $100 from GG's Antiques (the old Goodwill Store in Grants Pass, OR) and I just loved the possibilities of it! I didn't take a complete before picture but I took the doors off anyway so you can see that it wasn't really fancy good looking wood, and plywood in middle with veneer, here is a picture of the front doors that covered the drawers but not the bottom roll out drawers.....see enough damage I felt ok with painting it. And if you know me, you know I'm all about vintage white! Soooo
Here is the Edge showing the veneer..and how it is breaking off

Here is the picture of the doors, brand new probably nice but
veneer was even coming off the top of piece

Now you can see what I have at the end, I didn't want the doors but this is just such a cool piece, so many places to put stuff, and the bottom drawers roll out! Showing from the front and with all of the drawers pulled out. I was trying to find the vintage glass drawer pulls  and just wasn't available and I wanted to get this posted so I went ahead and painted the knobs and put them back on!
