I recently started a thread asking about material to diffuse natural light coming in the windows at out new studio. After being down there working on it at different times of the day we have decided to do white black out curtains on the majority of the windows as the position of the building to the setting and rising sun makes for some very uneven lighting and not really beneficial to how we will have it set up. I am looking for white or very light gray curtains to hang on a track that will cover 3 sides of the studio. 22 'X 18.75' X 22'. Any recommendations?

Just about any brick and mortar fabric shop should have black out cloth. The stuff I bought is white on one side and somewhat grey on the other. Keep in mind that it is pretty hefty stuff, depending on how you hang it and how you need it to pull out of the way it may be a pain in the neck.

After I rigged up my system, my mom told me she found some kid me of cloth blind that was made from black out material. They were cheap too.

For a more finished, less DIY solution, Smith and Noble makes awesome window coverings.
