So I ended up buying the table and chairs from Craigslist. Here is one of the chairs---ain't she pretty? A new coat of paint and new fabric (x 6 chairs)....I'll just add that to my list of things to get done by nightfall.
The table is...eh...not in great shape, and kind of ugly, actually.
The fretwork on the sides is missing in places, and although the chairs and bottom of the table are solid wood, the table top is made of a melamine-like product, so I don't think the table would take well to being painted. So, good thing we are having a garage sale this weekend, eh?
