Felt good about myself until she then spent 2k on the cushions for it....next spring is going to be expensive at the tackle shop ��
A few years after my younger brother moved out and they were empty nesters, my mom started redecorating the entire house. I was home one holiday and flipped through the Ethan Allen catalogs they had laying around. In it they had listed expect to budget up to $75/ft2 to furnish an entire house. This was late 90ís.

OP
We have a modern house with casement windows so got away with simple roll down blinds from the shade store and they ran almost $400/window. Obviously Much nicer than a $30 Home Depot roll up shade but still crazy money.
