    Paint the inside white and the outside turquoise and teal. Remove the inside shelves. Install cup hooks and position in different areas to hang lots and lots of long and short necklaces, and the bottom can hold bracelets. Create a cleat hanger on back and install another on the wall. I have a huge china cabinet with no doors that is now my jewelry cabinet and I love how much space it has to display my jewelry

    You could put some legs on it, or maybe you could find an old dresser to put under it. Then paint it or strip and stain to match.

    It would work well for a dresser top, or if you have a closet with lots of room, take the doors off and use the shelves.

    It would make a cute bar area. Doesn't have to be a booze bar could be a juice bar or even an area to show off glassware or other personal items.

  • I would keep it as a display case. Add bun feet to the bottom and paint it. You could add wallpaper to the back to brighten it up!

    You could take the glass out and add rattan. Then paint and add new hardware. Great for holding blanket and bedding.
