Upcycling furniture: bedside table

This piece is called China Cabinet because my design incorporates elements that remind me of a stage prop of the Thirties trying to create a Far Eastern ambience. I found the little bedside table at a garage sale in the Deep Cove area of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.The owner told me it her mother-in-law had bought it and used in their household until it became too outdated. The table is in very good condition, it obviously was a respected piece of furniture.
The new knobs are special. They are handmade and they complement my design perfectly. I got them at this fantastic hardware store, Cantu hardware in downtown Vancouver.
