I purchased a 1960's folding card table and chairs from an estate sale for $20. The table top and seats were covered in avocado vinyl that looked like it hadn't been cleaned since it's last party, 40 years ago.
To bring this classic furniture back to life, but keep it's retro flare, I laminated funky fabric to redo the table top vinyl while allowing the chairs and table to match. Iron-on vinyl laminate was the perfect solution to restoring the retro look and retaining the functional attributes of an easy to clean surface.
I spent less than $20 on fabric and iron-on laminate to restore the table and chairs.
Time: 1 Days Cost: $28 Difficulty: Moderate

    The table turned out very nice, this is something that I'm going to definitely have to try.

    PS: I have successfully used fabric and printed paper to cover furniture using hodpodge and/or water based poly to seal it, but sometimes it just doesn't
