Whether you are setting up a new office or updating an existing one, there are plenty of ways to do so without spending a small fortune.
How to Decorate Your Office on a Tight Budget by Nationwide offers several good suggestions on ways to save quite a bit of money. I have used many of these same tips when I was creating my own office space out of a spare bedroom.

I simply placed the 2′ x 4″ MDF board across the two small bookcases.
