Better After reader Jenny had a plan for this table set she found on Craigslist for $100. The fabric had obviously seen better days, and by the looks of things, those better days had happened somewhere around 1988. So she and her husband freshened up the seats with new fabric, a paint and stain combo on the chairs, and ditched the tabletop completely and built another one! Just like that! (This is magical to me, because that type of thing would never go down successfully at my house. We’d be eating on splinters and broken nails.) Great job Jenny!
