Distress the wood with a length of chain and a hammer, add some stain and a couple wooden embellishments from Lowe's:
Total cost less than $20 for screws, stain, and embellishments.
Then, because my kids and I think it's the funniest thing ever, add some Lil Wayne lyrics. (No, we don't listen to Lil Wayne in our house regularly, we're more of a Skinny Puppy/Linkin Park/Taylor Swift kind of household, but every time I look at this table it makes me smile to know what's hidden on the back.:)
