half moon curio make over - part 1

This is a hand-me-down from Hubby's mom. The stain was in terrible shape. Rubbing alcohol  had been spilled on the top leaving a white area. Some areas of stain were cracking from age and it was yellowing in places.

 Here is a close up of the gold designs on the door. Those were scraped off pretty fast!

UPDATED Jan 8-
the back does NOT work now. 
we put the light in and the hole we drilled is on the wrong side. 
also I hate the back painted turquoise. 
it is just TOO much.
and I broke a glass shelf...joy



so ideas that are floating around:
beadboard
fine gauge chicken wire
flipping back over and spray painting it white which would show the plywood grain


HELP!
