Restored Medicine Cabinet from the 1950s

I recently restored this lovely medicine cabinet with rounded corners from the 1950s (it's got a stamp in the back with the making date), in solid pinewood and with a beveled mirror.

I stripped it off the various layers of paint that had been added through the years, but leaving some traces to add some interest to the piece. I replaced the original, damaged hinges for old brass ones in perfect condition, added a brass clasp and a vintage bronze door knob -and painted the interior in a soft, warm gray tone that matches some of the traces of paint left on the outside.

Check the pictures below and the 'making of' section' for further details.

Measures: 50,5 x 37cm, 14cm deep.

The bathroom cabinet, before its transformation:
And a few pictures taken during the MAKING OF process: sanding and stripping off the layes of paint added on through the years,
Filling the wood worm holes with putty, painting the interior with soft gray enamel paint,
Sanding also the slats that hold the glass shelves and, finally, attaching the brass hinges (as I had to replace the original ones, this step took a few adjustments)
