    If the damage only extends up the chair legs by an inch or so you could simply cut that area off. I would then apply several layers of polyurethane to the cut ends and fasten on clear plastic leg protectors.

    If the damage only affects the wicker, Gail, then you have an easy fix. Make sure the legs are still solid. (Wicker table legs can be replaced, but they are a little difficult to locate.) Trim the wicker from around the legs to a point still glued. Find twine the same size of the wicker or a little smaller. Use E6000 or waterproof Gorilla Glue to glue the twine to the top of each leg, and every few turns as you wrap the twine all the way to the rubber caps. If you don’t have caps on the legs, put them on. When you finish wrapping twine and the glue is dry, you can paint or stain the legs of the table and other parts, too. This might be an excellent chance to add color with Rustoleum 2X and seal with waterproof clear Rustoleum. Please take pics for Hometalk! Many people will read your post. Best wishes, Gail. ☺️
