A Sweet Antique Cupboard

I got this cupboard well over a month ago and had to stare at it for a while before I could decide what to do with it. It's antique c.1900, solid oak, and very well built, with excellent dimensions that would make it useful in just about any room. I've painted the case in a soft sage green, and the interior in a deeper shade of green. The piece had an odd make-do top that wasn't original so I removed it and replaced the top with a much prettier solid pine one. Finally, to give the piece even more zip I did a bit of subtle decorative painting on the door.  I've staged the piece as a drinks cupboard, but it could be just as pretty in a bathroom, or as a little storage or media cabinet.
