Buffet Makeover

Ran across these pictures from a piece from last years Fall Barn Sale. 

The buffet has since sold.  
It may be one of those pieces that leaves me with a little sellers remorse,
 (just a little) :)
I usually prefer painted furniture over natural wood 95% of the time.
 But sometimes a piece calls for paint and some wood and  I never regret when I go to the extra work of refinishing a top with a stain and showing the original beauty of the wood. 
I hope whoever bought it is enjoying it.
The stain is a Varathane Dark Walnut and the paint is a custom color I mixed up.
