  • How I destroyed our dinning table.

    The table base seems fine--it's mostly the surface of the table top that is ruined. It might help to strip off the remaining veneer and then apply something else on top. I've seen people glue down pennies and then cover the surface with that epoxy resin. Or, you could attach a sheet of something (wood veneer, laminate, metal). Or, you could sand the surface smooth and take it down to the auto shop to get a spray finish. Personally, I'd just make it into a game table with interchangeable inserts to play different board games and card games. I'd make up some large versions of my favorite board game playing boards, adhere them to something like poster board, then lay the one I wanted to use on top and cover it with a custom-cut piece of clear acrylic (or glass, though glass can be heavy). ...see more »The table base seems fine--it's mostly the surface of the table top that is ruined.

A tablecloth would solve the problem when you want it to be a dining table again.
