Beautiful antique bookcase

A old chair/bench I am re-doing. This is before...

This is what I discovered beneath...

Here is where I am at...well, I've sanded and stained it now. Now I just have decide where to put it, what fabric to use and get some cushioning...

Isn't this bookcase amazing? I found it at an antique store....I took a photo of it and dreamed about it and finally caved and HAD to get it...especially since it was a perfect fit in my living room. If it had been an inch higher it wouldn't have fit. This WAS meant to be! It is from the early 1900's, and the glass is poured glass and if you look closely you can see a few bubbles in the glass because it was poured!

Here is another angle with this cute little desk next to it!

Here is the fireplace to the left of it. You should have seen the fire place was tile and hideous! I will show before and after pictures eventually. Also the walls were white, now they are dark gray!
