it works just fine. It just looks ugly
No attempt to change mind about facelift... but sometimes "ugly" works better: It makes you stand out from all the others concentrating on pretty aesthetics. No nonsense. Direct. And if the site has been up for a while with a good return visitor rate, a big change might lose some traffic.
I've found that rather than redo an ugly site completely, just changing margins or legibility and dealing with font consistency goes a long way.
