What to do with china cabinet

I have a china cabinet something like the picture. It is about 41" inches across.
I need a new/old cabinet that holds about 3 times the amount I have stuffed in here.
Any ideas what I could do with it?

    I have one similar, actually I have the complete dinning set minus 1 chair. When i refinished it I took the side panels on front out and replaced with glass. It made it more useful as a china cabinet. With a few alterations you could use it as a bar/liquor cabinet and still preserve the integrity of the piece.

    Thank you Lagree!

  • Lots of options! I repurposed an old radio into a sewing cabinet: http://www.prodigalpieces.com/2015/03/antique-stereo-turned-sewing-cabinet-themed-makeover/

    That's a beauty! I know Kathy from @PetticoatJunktion did one in red and it looks great.

    Here is mine...

    I bought mine for $25 at a church rummage sale. I used Annie Sloan chalk paints, added wooden appliques to side panels and top for interest and stenciled inside the glass door. I'm using it in my studio to organize art supplies.

    I have seen similar items painted and use for bathroom storage if you have the space. They add a great vintage feel to a bathroom.

    I don't know how old yours is, but mine is turn of the century and is worth $400-$600 and is going into consignment at a local antique store.
