Wow, thanks for all the replies.  Great suggestions!

We just moved into an older house that has wood walls instead of drywall and was able to put up both the blackout panel (works on noise and light!!!) and the curtains.

My newest problem is that the curtains that I made for our old room are too short in the new one. Ten foot ceilings with a six foot window!
It doesn't bother my husband but I will probably redo the bottom hem.

I had the same kind of problem, except for that even with my 50% off coupon I couldn't afford the vinyl, so I ended up buying an entire roll of the really wide felt. I got the black felt, put up sheets from my old work (hotel) on the other side to reflect the sun so it wouldn't get hot (my windows were over 13 feet tall and 18 feet wide so they acted like an oven), and then put another light weight and light color fabric on the inside so that it wouldn't be depressing with the black covering an entire wall. I couldn't really install a curtain rod, and there was no point since I knew I'd be moving out at the end of the summer, so i just nailed them to the wall - which was actually still part of the window frame so it was wood and not dry wall. But anyway, that worked perfectly, it was like night, but it was in a city so even at night you can see with all the lights off - so if you mean pitch black - then no it wasn't pitch black, but it was just as dark as it was at night.
