Advice for Restoring this Credenza?

Good Questions

Q: I found this at a garage sale for $40 today. It's sound, but a bit beat up. Inside it says Lane. It has some particle board, so I'm wondering if it's really a vintage credenza. Either way, I'd like to restore it and use it as a dresser. I'm not planning on painting, which should make everyone happy ;-) What's the best way to restore it to beauty?
