Orange Cabinet Makeover

I found this old orange cabinet in the basement of my cousin's house.  It is made of a fiber board, melamine type of material.  They didn't want it so I'm using it as a cabinet.  I've sanded it and repaired the holes.  I will post in a couple of days my artistic endeavor.  Although I've done lots of junk/art, this is my first post on junkmarket.  I thought I was crazy for collecting all kinds of junk and repurposing it for years- but years later I find lots of people who do the same thing! How cool!

I wanted to use my extra music roll on it to make it pretty, but decided I needed to get organized first and worry about pretty after.
Looking forward to see what you do to makeover this useful cabinet. Be sure to post the results.
