Q:I have been looking for a nice, modern-looking sideboard off and on for about a year. I haven't bought anything yet because the price always stops me in my tracks. However, my dad had this sideboard in his storage shed for a couple years; he tore it out of an early 1900's Victorian he was remodeling into condos. And he gave it to me for free, the best price. Now I need ideas...

...for refinishing and what to put on as a top. I want a modern, funky look. How can I jazz it up without cheesing it out? Our dining room is a deep red color with a dark brown, rustic dining table.
