Question Ideas for remodeling a kitchen table and chairs

I have an ugly white table. It has white tile in the middle and wood boarder. The legs are white woode type i believe. And the chairs are white legs and back and wooden seat. Instead of spending 3-400 dollard on a new one I figured maybe redo it for cheaper since it still has some life left. Ideas please

Do you have any pics? That would be helpful. Would chair cushins help? You could paint it all or do some sort of mosaic on the table top. What is your other decor like?

Depend on your style.

I'd paint all the white wood black, then get some of this:

in black and paint a medallion on the white tile and seal it. You could use stencils if you're afraid to freehand it.

Paint the chairs and get cushions and a table cloth?

In that case I'd strip the paint/varnish off, sand & distress it a bit and then stain it with a light walnut type of color to get a vinyard-y type of theme. Don't varnish it, just oil it with linseed. Your tile top would look just fine as-is then.
