Need a thrifty roof for backyard open deck, plus side privacy panels.

When we renovated, we added a back deck. It's great! It's huge! It's wide open! NOW we realize that we need a roof of sorts. But the money is super tight. We need something thrifty, to keep the sun out, in addition to privacy panels on the sides. Neighbors are very close. I would love to close it in some day, with an actual roof and screens all around. But right now, I just need ideas/suggestions for how to put a "roof" up. I'm thinking curtains or roll up blinds for the sides....which would be easily enough handled. Ideas, please? I'm thinking like under $100 ideas. Thanks!
