Any tips for decorating a home on a tight budget?

Question by Sugarcookie: Any tips for decorating a home on a tight budget?
We have been remodeling our home and now it is time to decorate it. Everything I like is out of our budget. Anyone have any tips, websites, stores, etc. to get a big look for little money.

We have wood floors, ceramic tile, and carpeting throughout, all about 6 months old. I have also painted all the walls (no white here!) I just need some tips for decorating with accessories on a tight budget, as the majority of the money was spent on the actual contruction, flooring, trim, and new furniture.

If you have the time thrift stores, and yard sales and ebay might do the trick. You just have to look.
If you can sew a little you could do drapes & slip covers or pillow covers. Fabrics are on sale right now too. And you can add a valance to make it look special and tiebacks of same/contrasting colors or design. In our area the dollar stores carry less expensive rods and curtains, bedspreads, etc. that are not that bad really.
Sometimes repainting a piece of furniture works well too.
On a budget things will take longer, but you can put together a totally "you" look and after all your house is for you not your neighbors/friends. Good Luck & Have Fun
