Home Decorating on a Budget. How to???

Anyone have some tips on decorating your home on a tight budget? What have you done thats crafty, cheap, and looks wonderful! I'm about to buy a home. I've never worried about home decorating because our space is too small and our finances limited. Now that we will have our own place though, whats your suggestions?

  • Goodwill! You can spray paint, sand and stain, and recover so many things for cheap to make your house look nice. Paint can make a big impact too.

  • Fresh paint is always good.

    If you sew, you can make matching curtains and pillows.

    I like to decide on a color scheme and make a trip to the dollar store to see what I can find that might look nice. You can usually find cheap picture frames and mirrors that you can glue things to or paint to coordinate with your decor.

  • Ikea, always has great deals..Invest in a sewing machine, curtains and pillows are so easy to make and they are so expensive at most stores..
