Does anyone have any good DIY or cheap home decorating web sites? Besides Craftster of course..
We just bought our first home and I'm feeling overwhelmed by trying to decorate it with our very very tight budget.
Thank you so much Smiley

The HGTV and DIY Network websites have some good things. They're not organized super well IMO though so sometimes you have to dig for the good stuff. I watch a lot of the shows on these channels for ideas too. Especially things like Design on a Dime and such.

Look at what you have and what you can make with it. I decorated a lot of my home with stuff I had, cheap yard sale refurbs and such. A coat of paint, string and glue are your friend.

try http://www.diychatroom.com/

they've got a bunch of different sections, and they are very helpful there.. it might be more in depth in places than you want, but I'm sure you can get some good info there...

When I bought my house ( my first and only so far) I picked up "Interior Decorating for Dummies." I got a lot of really great ideas from it. You probably could get it from the library if you don't want to buy it. Sorry that wasn't quite what you asked for but it was a great starting point for me.

I'm glad I could help. I hope you like it. You may get so addicted to the book you want to buy it. Look in a used book store if you do. I'm sure it will be pretty easy to find there.
