    I would say "give it to me" if I lived closer. Seriously, that is a beautiful piece. I would love to find one like that.

      Hmm, this table is really very old and by the way making a bar from such a table is a great idea. I recently also decided to sell my table and buy a new one. I searched for suitable options for a long time and I was lucky that I came across pickmyturntable.com. There is a huge assortment and you can find the price and review for any model. After two weeks of choosing with my wife, I decided to buy one very luxurious model for 890 bucks and it is really worth the money, because it is made of high quality wood and besides it just looks gorgeous. So if you also want to find a replacement for your table for record player, then on this site you will find an overview of any model.

    I agree that it does have a lot of style, particularily with the doors closed. Do not try to "re-do" it by altering the wood, as this is the feature that creates most of the time-period value.
    What are the dimensions of the inside compartment? If you can spare the floor space that the legs take up, how about using it for an odd-shaped or bulky kitchen appliance that is not used everyday, such as a food processor or mixmaster, instead of the small appliance always out on the counter?

    Maybe install a bunch of Lumenier candles on several levels and heights, I would get the ones with a remote.
    Or you could do a fairy cabinet with a mini fairy world. I could also see a butterfly box with butterflies flying out the box and up the face. Let your imagination run wild.
    You might also be able to find a little electric fireplace to fit in there or install a mini flat screen in there and get one of those fireplace dvds to play. Would require cutting a hole in back to put plug through.

    I would hire a professional to help. ; ) I would remove the outdated record player and radio. Remove the front piece with the little doors. Cut that in half so you have two larger doors with a larger storage area behind it. It reminds me of a secretary style desk.

    I wouldn't do anything to it. It is a magnificent piece of history that is in such great shape. I would love to have something like that myself.

    It’s beautiful! Leave as is and use for storage and let it stand in room on its own as a piece of art.

    Thank to all for your suggestions. The old radio will stay the way it was meant to be.

    Actually, I have one similar to this and I use it as a "telephone" cabinet. I have a cordless phone with charger and two wireless cell phone chargers along with a small lamp on top and store phone books and cell phone accessories in the cabinet. It maintains its "antique" look and remains functional.
