It has the grooves in the shelves for displaying dishes and a cottage-y, beadboard-type back:
It's going to need some new knobs and a paint job, but that doesn't scare me, since I discovered Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint:
It is exactly what I've been dreaming of--full size, lots of charm, not too precious so I can paint it without worrying that I'm covering up gorgeous wood:

...to reveal a little drawer. I'm not sure if I'm keeping this one or repurposing it for a friend. But I keep seeing it in white, with a gingham skirt. We'll see....
In the meantime, I can't wait to get started painting this gorgeous beast:
I may have to buy a bigger can of paint.
