I need decorating help

I need to put up window treatments in my oldest daughter's new room.  And I am clueless on what to do! If you saw my house you would notice that the majority of windows are naked. Unless you count dropclothes just hung with ring clips and some mismatched curtains in the master bedroom for light control. I hate doing curtains.
They scare me!

The issues-
  • preteen girl who puffy heart loves WILD and CRAZY colors/prints just to annoy me show her creative side
  • north and west sun
  • busy street views so privacy is a must!
  • I can't sew
  • LOW budget
  • corner windows

Now I will go cringe in the corner while I show pics of the windows

This is NOON in her room with lights ON
dark dark dark!

Ignore the broken blinds. Bub wanted to look outside one day... we never replaced it
because he would tear up the new ones too

ideas she loves---
isabella &max--girls dream bedroom drapery

sawdust and paperscraps. madison's bedroom.

project that might be over my head

 I spotted this chair yesterday at Goodwill and my oldest instantly loved it.
I went back today and got it for her.
Cost $30

The chair is solidly constructed and the fabric is in good shape.
I am not sure if I will slip cover it or try to reupholster it.
I didn't succeed the last time I tried it.
And I don't sew so I am praying my Mom will make a trip down and help me out. :)
I am a glutton for punishment!

She had to pose for a pic so she can put it on her blog.
Now the little sister wants a chair like it. What are the chances of finding the twin to it?!
The fights begin...
