I found this set of furniture on Craigslist, but the seller lived pretty far and I could not fit all three into my car. I asked if there was anyway he could deliver and he said YES!
I'm sure no one wanted them because of the very dirty and old upholstery, but I saw past that and I know they will be fabulous when recovered.

Guess how much I got these babies for? $65!
The two wing backs will go in our formal living room, and the loveseat will go in my office.
Now I just need to figure out what to reupholster them in. The possibilities are endless... but I'm thinking either white or black (with nailheads) can go the extra mile and show off the sexy curves of the chairs.
I know - pretty boring, but classic. However, I decided to keep this settee for our kitchen nook:
And it will get reupholstered in something super fun. Not sure what that is yet though.. I'll keep you posted.
HOMEOWNER TIP: If you cannot splurge on new furniture (like us)... buy used from Craigslist and reupholster. It's about half the cost of a new piece, and usually old pieces are much better quality!
