Newbie needs help...

First post on the site!!!!

I've tried searching a bit, but the site isn't very easy to navigate.

Here's the basic story: I'm 34 and I just reached a point where I'm ready to invest in my home. I'm looking to start in the rooms where I need it the most: the bedroom and the dining room.

In the bedroom I have a really comfortable mattress and a wire shelving unit with my clothes stacked on it. The dining room is a completely blank slate with the exception of my son's toys.

I'm looking to spend about 10k total. I live in Charleston, but I've heard there are some decent furniture stores in North Carolina.

What should I look for in terms of quality? What brands would be recommended in my price range?

Thanks for the advice.
