Silk Purses From Sow's Ears?
Style-wise, it's sort of generic country/traditional.
But making it sort of Danish modern shouldn't be too hard. Just replace the doors and strip and refinish the cabinet.
Here are some images of Danish modern corner cabinets. Most stand on short, tapered legs, but some of the taller cabinets, like mine, are flush with the floor. Works for me!
The images I've done here show a photoshopped woodgrain, probably walnut. I have no idea what kind of wood the cabinet is made from, but I'm pretty sure it's not walnut. You can see a tiny bit of the woodgrain looking at the back of the upper doors, through the glass, where the antiquing wouldn't reach, and the grain looks pretty.
Then we'll find out what kind of wood grain the cabinet has, and how it will look stained and varnished.
