Formerly an off-white Formica table with matching chairs with cat-abused vinyl, this sat on the balcony of my former apartment.

Costwise, this is one of my finest crafting triumphs. The primer, black paint, one can of silver spraypaint, Scotchgard, plastic sheeting, and all the paintbrushes were out of my parents' garage; and I had the Krylon, contact paper, and fabric on hand. I spent $4 on one more can of silver spraypaint and $3 on a roll of masking tape, and that constituted my total out-of-pocket cost for this entire project.
