Bedroom noise question

I went to Amazon looking at sound proofing solutions. Then I considered the cost and decided to let my hubby handle it. He bought some pegboard from someplace like Home Depot, cut it to size, and screwed down the planks over my windows. He didn't even paint it. This deadened the sound both in the bedroom and what I heard from outside. It also darkened the room. I had curtains that covered the planked up windows. I had these up for a good 18 months. It worked great.

It was a great solution until the room started smelling mildewy. Yup, had to take them all down and clean the windows. Then I decided to leave them off -- I'm tolerating the noise better.
I just want to save her answer. Hope I did this right?
