Don't discount old ugly furniture.

My husband and I love mid-century design, but it's so expensive, and sometimes difficult to find. We found this old sofa and chair at a garage sale for $75. Still had good bones, so we took it to a reupholstery shop, and for $275, they recovered them (including fabric!). Now we have a really cool mid-century set, of much better quality than the new reproduction stuff you find today. Reupholstery isn't as expensive as you think, and we now shop with that in mind.
