Dresser or Cabinet?

I found this wonderful dresser/cabinet at the flea market a couple of weeks ago.  It was already painted black, but the paint job was awful.  I have never seen a dresser quite like this before although I have seen vintage dressers that have been encased in cabinets with shelves as well.  This sweet little cabinet is very compact and would even be a great entertainment cabinet in a bedroom with the flat screen TV on top.
The inside needed painting because it was still oak inside.  All it took to transform this gem was a little paint on the inside and a lot of sanding on the outside to bring out its character.  I put some numbers on the drawers and I wish I would have used a color other than antique white for the numbers, but all in all I think it turned out all right.  My photos are showing a lot of glare because of the lighting.  I see a huge shadow on the inside of the door in the next photo.
I love the details of the cabinet itself and the wood showing through gives it a nice aged look with a lot of character.
Thanks for your visit.

Very pretty! I think it would look great in a dining room for linens with fun things on top.

I love it...I wonder if it easier to put on paint than to take off paint??? It looks great!

Hi Maggie! Looks like a cabinet dresser to me! Love it in black I think Kirby has a point - this would be great in a dining room.
