Window light blocking

block light with a home made 2x4 panel

What's an easy way to block 100% of incoming light and still have the option to turn the "light" on when you want a little sunshine?

I cut a 2x4 and installed a handle for easy removal and closing.

Why not use curtains? The ones I tried let a good amount of light shine through.

Maybe put some desiccant packets behind the wood? I'd be worried about window condensation and runoff creating mold behind the board. :)
