Butler's Pantry?

For our kitchen renovation (which I drew out so professionally here), I have had my eye out for a large built-in cabinet to put on the far wall that is currently blank space but will become a part of the kitchen. One of our options is to emulate a built-in butler's pantry like you see in the older houses around town. Another option is to buy an antique one and install it. I haven't decided which option we'll go with - it will come down to money. Until then, I've been scouting out options and I found this butler's pantry today:

 I love it - it is from an old farmhouse in Mississippi. What I don't love? The price tag... can you read it in the picture? Yeah. But it is perfect. I'm going to think about it for a bit and then maybe go back and visit with it some more. We'll see.

where is this at? bojo's? I really like it. Would you paint it or would you just put a wax coat on it?
Did you see the picture I posted of an armour in my house album on fb? It took me 10 months to purchase, restore, and install that thing.
If you love it...make 'em a deal!

I think I'd wax the top and bottom (besides a good clean), paint the back beadboard vanilla bean, and paint the counter thing a shiny black since our counters will be black - what do you think?

I like the vanilla bean on the beadboard...not sure about the black. I think it would be kind of neat to get a couple pieces of your countertop (scrap pieces) and put that on the top.. Yes that's extra $, but may not be much. There will be scraps, so you might as well use them for something. I've got a scrap marble/stone guy. We'll talk.
