In these tough economic times, the price is a big problem for most DIY decorators. You can find really nice curtains and window treatments in both discounted stores and mid-range stores.

A favorite of some sleepers makes curtains from flat sheets.

Care is something else to think about. Drapes and curtains that have to be cleaned are a problem if you are on a tight budget. Many beautiful fabrics are now in washable form.
