Window Treatments.... help?

At first, my thoughts were that I would make curtains out of my favorite drop cloths... Then I realized that all three of my drop cloths were different colors (different brands, different shade of canvas) so I haven't been in a real hurry to try to go purchase a fourth as it kind of defeats the purpose of being "frugal".

My plan was to embellish these drop cloth drapes with this sweet vintage drapery fabric that I scored at Goodwill a few months ago. This very "durable" fabric is a light teal and would add a nice pop to my color palette if added to the bottom of these panels.

For Christmas I received several Target gift cards and still had about $35 left so the other day, I stopped by to see what kind of deals I could get. So I found these.... Now I don't have to worry about making my panels out of my mismatched drop cloths!

I'm trying to decide whether or not to hang them "as is" or embellish them with my fabric... This is the look that I'm going for if I choose to embellish.
