What are some good cheap (and I mean cheap) decorating ideas?

I am poor and would love to fix my one bedroom apartment up. I love shopping at thrift stores. There is no flea market where I live. Does anyone have any creative and inexpensive decorating ideas they could share? Like maybe how to easily make your own curtains, how to turn a bolt of thrift store cloth into a wall... show more I am poor and would love to fix my one bedroom apartment up. I love shopping at thrift stores. There is no flea market where I live. Does anyone have any creative and inexpensive decorating ideas they could share? Like maybe how to easily make your own curtains, how to turn a bolt of thrift store cloth into a wall hanging, etc. I find lots of cool stuff at thrift stores, I'm just not sure how to implement it. I've looked through some so-called cheap decorating books but they're either impractical or their idea of cheap and mine differ. I have no kids. Thanks!
