A Dog Ate My Project

Want a new way to distress your furniture?  Let a dog eat it!  My friend gave me a table that her daughters borrowed while they were in college.  Their dog used it as a chew toy so they put some tape on it to prevent more chewing.

Exhibit A 

The Tape


Exhibit B 

The Damage

I sanded the rough chewed area (the other side was chewed and taped as well).

And it looks better.  There are some bite marks above this area that look like worm holes.

I hope to try and redo this little table over the weekend and find out if dog eaten furniture can still look good.  Would you bet for or against it?
