You just use standart django query terms, for example:

<form>
    <input class="field_text filter_from" type="text" name="cost__gte" placeholder="from" value="{% if request.GET.cost__gte %}{{ request.GET.cost__gte }}{% endif %}">            
   <input class="field_text filter_to" type="text" name="cost__lte" placeholder="to" value="{% if request.GET.cost__lte %}{{ request.GET.cost__lte }}{% endif %}">
</form>

model:

class Object(models.Model):
    cost = models.IntergerField()
    objects = ObjectManager()

        qs = self.get_query_set()
        filters = dict()

        fields = [f.name for f in self.model._meta.fields]
        for p in request.GET:
            if constants.LOOKUP_SEP in p:
                field_name, field_qterm = p.split(constants.LOOKUP_SEP)
            else:
                field_name = p

            if field_qterm and field_qterm not in constants.QUERY_TERMS:
                continue
            if field_name in fields:

Hi, this is nice. I made something similar. Problem with this is, when invalid filters are passed to filter(). It will not not raise an exception from filter(), but at the time of queryset evaluation.

PS: try to modify your snippet to support other logical operators than AND...
