Missing from this space were two essential ingredients: a table and chairs. We put together a stylish ensemble for about $300.
We built the table using a standard 48-inch round top and inexpensive lumber, and then we painted it black. The crossed leg design mimics the chair backs. The chairs were ordered from a discount retailer for a steal at just $30 each. We covered the seats with batting and more toile fabric, using nails to hold the material in place.

- What it cost: $145 for table materials and $30 per chair
