Intrepid DIYer Emily was looking for a patio table, and happened to score this one on Craigslist for free. But it wasn't quite love at first sight. The chairs were covered in a weird mottled brown paint, and the cushions were falling apart. Plus, Emily admits, she's not such a huge fan of glass top tables. (Not that I can blame her — my roommate and I had a glass-topped table in college and that thing squeaked. I can still hear it now. Squeak squeak squeak. Squeak squeak squeak.) But with the addition of a little outdoor fabric, some spray paint, and some old fence wood, things were looking up.
