OK so the bathroom is now light-proofed. Went surprisingly well, considering my (next to) no-cost approach. I made a lightweight frame from some leftover lengths of wood with some cast-off, but good quality, window shade material stapled on. Spray-painted black for good measure. This fits snugly over the window trim.
The door still has big gaps but after dark I'm good on that side, and it will help with ventilation.
I got 250 sheets of Adorama house brand 5x7 that someone had cheap on ebay (a sealed box, hey, I'm not stupid), I'm pressing a set of organizer trays from Walmart into service, and I put a 25 watt red "party light" bulb into the overhead fixture. Which leads to my question -- can you good folks reassure me that my stack of paper will be safe under that? Direct line probably about 6 feet to my work surface, and a recessed light with milky glass, not a bare bulb.
No rush. Watching game 6 tonight, anyway. Thanks!
