card table makeover --- UPDATE --- I ended up using a vinyl table cloth to recover a card table I had. It was hard to get the cover flat and the heel of my hand got sore from all the staples, but over all - such an improvement!
That old folding card table can still come in handy, so don't throw it out. Just revamp it (along with the chairs) to give it new life.
