Ideas for Decorating a Sparse Spare Room Without Spending Much Money?

Q: My boyfriend and I just took the plunge to cohabitation and are renting a two bedroom apartment in Chicago. We love the place and have been enjoying decorating it together. We have no idea what to do with the second bedroom.

It has murky green carpeting, a white and gold ceiling fan, and we just painted the walls white (they were yellow).

We both have day jobs and don't need a home office and all of our family and friends live in Chicago so we really don't need a guest bedroom. We've used our decorating budget buying new pieces for our space, so don't have much extra money to put into this room. Can you help us decide what to do with this spare room on a very small budget? Currently it holds an old leather love seat and a second TV.
