Aqua Buffet With Dark Top

I picked this piece up a few weeks ago.  I wasn't sure when I bought it if the top would be able to be refinished.  I first tried painting it, but the paint would scrap off when anything rubbed against it.  I decided to try and sand it down.  It ended up taking a lot more sanding than I bargained for, but after a couple coats of dark stain and some wax I felt like it was worth the effort.  

This is a shot of the inside.  It is all open storage except for a drawer.

This is a shot of the open drawer.  The top folds back from the center to give more room to serve food.  
This is a close-up of the lemonade box.  It includes 24 recycled bottles with freshly painted lids and paper straws.  The box was painted, stenciled with yellow paint and then outlined with a paint pen.  It would be perfect for a summer party!  Thanks for checking it out.
