So, it only took about an hour total (broke it up into a couple of naptimes) and I have some window treatments. And it only took the following:
6 tension rods from Target (I think around $3 each on sale - so $20 bucks total)
1 60x90 tablecloth from World Market (on sale for $29.99)
Stitch Witchery (the most amazing stuff ever)
No, I forgot to take before shot and only have a couple "in progress" shots. I am too lazy to take them down to take pics, but HERE is the tutorial I used as a guide.
1. I cut the tablecloth in half so that it was 45 x 60. The tutorial said to try to have the fabric be the length of your windows (mine are 72, but I decided it was close enough, especially since I wanted them to be short).
2. I trimmed the fabric from 45 inches to 37 inches and then used an iron and stitch witchery to make a nice 1 inch rolled hem that matched the already sewn 1 inch hem on the other side.

|The fabric/tablecloth is not my favorite but it was good to try out and matches some of the colors in my house - best thing about it is that it is cheap and easy and I could easily replace it!|
