When I was a boy, we used a type of white wash on the inside of
green house windows to reduce light and heat levels.  It was easy to
remove at any time.  Try a green house operator for advice?  There
are also the old reliable solutions of fluted polypropylene sheets,
plywood or fabric barriers, if you can figure out a way to attach
