Door shade

I haven't been able to sleep in if there's light in the room for years now and have always come up with ghetto methods of keeping the light out, but letting my cats go in and out of the room. Usually these have involved ratty old sheets draped over the partially open door and the most recent incarnation also used a coat hanger that the sheet attached to and would hook over the doorway of my sliding pocket doors. It looked like crap, but worked and most guests never saw it unless they crashed on the couch.

Well, some other recent improvements finally motivated me to put a more proper solution in, so I got this cheap, black blind from Ikea and voĆ­la: a decent looking light blocker. Really wish I would've done this years ago!
