Thrift is the name of the game. Take in all thrift stores in your area. You'd be amazed at what you might find. Many things are brand new or nearly new. Even if you don't have a theme or scheme in mind you may stumble upon something you love and build from there. If you have a large home pick up all sorts of containers both large and small, fun shapes, and colors. Fill these containers with live or artificial plants and set up groupings to fill in empty spaces. If you've just grown tired of things you already have, recycle them with paint, new textures, mix rather than match curtains, place mats, rugs, etc.
"One man's junk is another man's treasure". If you don't believe the old saying, take a cruise one Saturday morning and view the people combing your neighbor's driveways. Better yet, read the classified ads.You will quickly become a believer.... read more
Yes, I have some home decorating ideas: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-decorate … more-space
Craig's list, despite all the hoopla is a wonderful place to find bargains. The fact is, that paint is one the least expensive ways to decorate your house on a budget. But be weary, just don't buy cheapest stuff you can find, you will regret it. There is a saying, "there is nothing more expensive than cheap paint"
I have located through craigslist a Benjamin Moore paint store in Portland that sells discontinued and mis tinted paint. They can be found on craigslist at $10-$15 per gallon.
I wrote a page about this very thing at DIYAngel, check it out!

First you need to decide on a theme for the room your going to decorate. after that you need to remember to not over do it on the theme. to much of any theme could make the room look terrible. also remember to no clutter the room.
Big or small the most important thing is to make it your own; express yourself with use of colors, textures and accents. When I am working on a room I always begin with my color's; once you know that you can plan on the style and size of the furniture needed. Decorating on a budget is a great way to show what you can do.
Paint can work wonders; and you don't have to stick with one color but you do need to keep within the same "tones".
Great places to look for decor; Big Lots, Yard Sales, Estate Sales, "your friends", and never look at something for what it is but for what it can be.
Here is an idea for a great "feature wall"; go to yard sales and pick up inexpensive picture frames (don't worry) about the color just the styles. Various sizes and styles; and a can of spray paint will unify them. Now create a layout on the floor and once you find the perfect one...place them one by one on the wall! Art!!!!

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.

The background: In the thread ‘If You Were To Date A Hubber Who Would It Be?’ Jenny (Inspirepub) rashly volunteered to join my vessel as did Cindy (mistyhorizon2003). Even as I write this, these two fine hubbing women are relaxing in separate parts of the ship as we inch our way through...
