Hello AT,

I found this cabinet in my grandparents basement a few years ago. It's an old library card-file cabinet back from the Dewey Decimal era. Currently it's just gathering dust in a guest bedroom. I was hoping someone could help me figure out what exactly I can do with this. Is there a way I could line the scratchy drawers or refinish the wood to make it look modern? Would it look better without the door?

Thank you! Jen
