Hey, make me over

Well, I am obviously still off the wagon. Yesterday was a freaky weather day that reached the upper 50's here. Everyone was out, the snow was was a bit strange. When I was walking the boy we came upon this old record album cabinet. I could use it for my LPs, but I think I want it for a more utilitarian purpose. I was thinking of using it as a nightstand, but it is not a quality piece and it has too large of a footprint to place in my bedroom. I am thinking of using it in my kitchen. I would use it for my cookbooks as well as a place for all of the dog treats. I would use the top of it for my landing strip.

This is the hardware on the doors.

This is what it looks like on the inside.

So, I have thought so painting it, but I do not know what color. I also have thoughts of papering the inside and possibly the front doors. Maybe that it too trendy. I am not a very trendy person when it comes to my decor. It is more of an eclectic group. So, does anyone have any opinions out there? I need some input.
