Gary and his wife inherited this piece and hated it. They wrote in to ask readers for advice on how two "unskilled and not creative" types could rehab this behemoth into something they'd be happy to have in their home. A contingent of readers liked it as it was, others said to sell it and many of you had suggestions for how to transform it with paint or stain. So, which readers did they listen to or did they forge their own path?

Gary shares:

After all of the feedback, my wife decided to paint the cabinet using Annie Sloan Chalk paint -Napoleonic blue & green. Since we needed the space for storing my kids' home schooling supplies and other things that are not necessarily display worthy, she replaced the glass with wood and painted and stained the pattern shown on that wood.

Thanks, Gary!
