My old curtains were purchased years ago at the Christmas Tree Shops. They were green velvet tab top. Since then, I am not a fan of tab top anymore. Plus they were faded from the sun and just outright dirty because of the wood stove we use continuously in this room. In addition the wooden rods were practically breaking in half.
As you can see, my windows are huge and can end up costing me a fortune seeing how much draperies cost these days. One panel alone at Pottery Barn is $100 for an inexpensive one. Since this room is still yet to be gutted and refinished, I am trying to spend very minimal money on the makeover. Our new couches and the window treatments are the only money I am spending. The rest I am utilizing what I already have.
I decided to go with Ikea. They have thick white curtains (almost a canvas feel) that cost $14.99 a pair. I needed 4 pair. They only had tab top in the style I wanted, so I knew I could just sew the top over. The rods were only $7.99 each. I needed 4 of these. Here is the final result:

I purchased white hooks from Walmart at only $1 a piece. They work like a charm.
