FLIP your dining table top for a rustic, reclaimed look.

The underside of most dining table is simple, raw, unfinished wood. That's an awesome stroke of luck because unfinished wood is a great canvas! Remove a few screws & flip your table top so that the underside becomes the new top side. Stain it. Paint it. Both. Leave the legs as they are or paint them too. Distress it all with whatever you have laying around--sand paper, a hammer, a wire brush, etc. Try wipe on polyurethane for an easy, quick drying sealer.
The best part about this style of table though is that the more you use it, the better it looks!
