Just an FYI to share some sources for redo's on the cheap!
Freecycle is a great site where you can give & get free stuff. Trash to Treasure kinda thing. Most places have a local site, and there are so many in operation now you're sure to find one near you. Folks post "offer's" and "wanted's" for all kinds of stuff, you'd be suprised what gems you can find. And it's a great place to send your unwanted stuff to a good home. The best part is that it's a local thing, so if your neighborhood has other homes built in the same period as yours, you can score their discards as they go for modern. Oh, and all items must be free!
GoodWill isn't just for donating! You may find there's a GoodWill Store near you, and if you do there's a good chance you'll find the old headboard or dining room table you're dying to restore and add to your home. We've been super-lucky there, lots of solid wood furniture ready for it's next life.
(search for ReStore or Habitat for Humanity Store with your local area)
Habitat stores are connected to "Habitat for Humanity" and are a great source for just about anything. Builders donate leftovers like flooring still in the box, extra vanities and whatnot. They also accept appliances less than 5yrs old, and sell them for way cheap. All proceeds go to the Habitat projects locally. And just like Good Will, they carry old furniture and homegoods ready for their next life!
Good for your home, good for your wallet, and good for the planet
