Makeover Ideas for Vintage Credenza?

Good Questions

Q: I came across this credenza which serves as a great landing strip + storage for my small apartment without taking up much space. The finish is in nice shape on the top and the sides, but the moulding around the door is brittle and has been broken off and repaired many times, so this is no heirloom item, and definitely not worth refinishing.

I love the lines but hate how dark this piece is, and I also dislike the decorative scrollwork on the doors. I was thinking of painting the doors, but what color? Or paint the whole thing? Or is there any other brilliant option I'm missing? Thanks, Apartment Therapy!
