Antique Radio turned Cabinet

I have had this radio for almost a year.  I finally got sick of it sitting in my garage so I put it on Craigslist to get rid of it.  GASP!  Don't worry I called my husband and said I think I am going to keep it and I continued on to tell him I would do something with it this week.
I am absolutely so happy I took the ad down and refinished it. We gutted the inside and cut two boards for shelving and then added the bead board to the back.  I took it to the Sweet William Market and it didn't sell.  I wasn't bummed at all because I am keeping it! :)  I am using it in my bedroom for my night stand. I love how unique it is.  

What do you think about the new cabinet? 
Did you have a great weekend?
