I store the table and chairs during the winter, but the weave has come apart. The seat and back are still in good shape. Any helpful ideas would be appreciated.

    If the rest of the weave is in good shape, I suggest a matching pillow and armrests. Both are easy to do. You can glue the arm pads to the remaining frame" . The pillow would be very easy. Just foam, fabric, spray glue some semi flexible boards and go for it. Also, if you pick a fabric, go for a solid or print with no seem match issues.

    Good luck.

    if all but the sides I would rip out the sides and leave it open

    clean off the rotting fibers and paint metal with rust proof paint the make fabric covered foam arm bands with velcro to attach to arms so can be washed

    after you decide on how to repair or modify those arms, give some thought on how to preserve the rest of the chair. The arms would be only the first to go. My favorite wicker chair I've come across was a family treasure. It was over 100 years old with that many layers of white wash applied every year after a little sanding. The white wash filled in the gaps and strengthen the wicker.
