When confronted with the challenge of restoring furniture, what usually comes to mind is a pricey re-upholstery or hours spent slaving away on stripping and refinishing wood. But, one of the simplest ways to update a piece of furniture that's seen better days or is not totally your style is to replace its legs. You can take a chair with metal legs and swap them for wooden ones to give it a more traditional look, or just switch out boring wooden legs for clawfoot legs to give a piece a bit more personality. I personally still think it can't get any better than turned wood, but that's just me. Some great sources for furniture legs are Classic Designs by Matthew Burak, TableLegsOnline.com, and Bing's.
