The Weekender: Radio Cabinet Help

A couple weeks ago, Jerome and I hit up a garage sale on our way to Home Depot.  At first, it seemed like a bust, until we saw this awesome radio cabinet way in the back.  The radio had already been removed and the owners were planning on throwing it out.  My mind started racing with ideas for things to do with the cabinet.  We bought it for $10.

Now that it's home, we've realized there aren't that many places to put the radio.  It only fits in two places, the alcove by the kitchen and the corner of the living room (pictured).

We thought about making it into an entertainment center...the fabric of the old speaker cover allows signals to come through so it'd be perfect for housing our xbox and cable box. Unfortunately the radio cabinet didn't look right under the TV.  So now we're back to square one. 

We're headed to Home Depot today to buy shelves to put in the cabinet.  If you have any ideas of what we could do with it...bookshelves, dry bar, etc...let me know!  We need inspiration :)
