    I have Disney Princess and Tinkerbell curtains in my room that u could shoot peas thru. The minute there is light, madam wakes.

    where would be the best and cheapest place to get black out linings? :D

    I have the same problem drives me mad!

    Could be quite easy to do it yourself if you grabbed some black material from town?
