Redesign: High-impact, low-cost solutions

Yard sales
Their attic or other rooms (which you should do as you redesign.
Craft Stores
All Clearance racks

What are you looking for? Old chairs that can be recovered or refinished. Old pieces of furniture can be repurposed, too, such as the old dresser. Lamps. Table cloths. Pictures. Remember, when you are looking, creativity is key.
