It was love at first sight

All the furniture pieces in the picture are secondhand finds.
If I had to pick one piece of furniture in our home that was my favourite, I would choose this side cabinet any day of the week. I found it in ages ago in a charity shop for only 40 euros. The color was horrible a pinkish/beige/yellow, but for the moment I saw it it was love at first sight. Bringing this elephant-heavy thing home was maybe even more horrible than the color. I painted the sideboard black and instantly all horrors melted away. The only thing I would like to do is something with the little glass “windows” or do you think I should keep them as they are?
