WOW-I'm impressed. Your mother will be thrilled I bet. 

For the curtains, try www.domestications.com or www.brylanehome.com  Not the
BEST stuff in the world but doable and much cheaper than most places.

Yeah, I am still in shock over the prices.  I bought drapes for my house a
year and half a go and paid 30.00 per window! (granted they were on sale and
I
had additional percent off coupon)
 
These are for my mothers house.  When she went in for this last surgery, I
knew she wouldn't be home for 5 weeks, so I moved EVERYTHING out of her
living
room, dining room, and bedroom.  I had the rooms painted and sears came out
and did the carpets.  My mother isn't into cleaning nor organizing. Where
ever
she laid the bag/box down when she comes homes stays there till she needs
what
ever is in it.  Drives me nuts!  So I put everything where it belongs and
cleaned all the furniture.  Amazing how much room there is rather than the
paths she had.  So now I am down to shades/curtains for the front
room...never
expected it to cost that much.  But she decided on green for the room which
used to be blue... so we have to get something cause the old ones that are
worn/sun dried bleached don't match at all.
 
Last weekend I started on her basement..... yipes! that will take months to
organize and sort out.  She really can't do much yet, but she is deciding on
what to get rid of.  Already packed up a dozen boxes of stuff she plans on
selling or donating....and the garbageman isn't going to like us this week
either as I have a big pile for him too.
 
Always somethin'

Yes, I know but good grief - 1000 bucks for curtains?   I'm sorry,
that's
outright robbery.
