Behind the Curtain – (Abnormal) Paranormal Activities

Hmmm… seems somebody was busy after hours. Could this be the result of prankster spirits joining in on the fun? Maybe they’re trying to help us with set up? If so, they’d better step up their game. Only 2 more weeks left before opening! As we’re oh-so-subtly reminded:

 So lets get the rest of that furniture in here already!

Um…. guys? How’re you going to get that through the door? I’ll just leave that for them to figure out. Let’s take a look at some progress shall we? Here’s a larger project that at least 7 people have contributed to.

Here’s the rundown of the project:

1.The newly constructed doors and trim were installed.
2.We painted them all black.
3. What it looked like when we were done.
4.The edges and trim were highlighted with white. Wallpaper was added to the walls
5. We treated the wallpaper to appear aged and worn.

Here’s a close up of the aging that was applied to ‘The Shining’-esque wallpaper:

Ewww! Creepy! If walls could talk, these would scream! Speaking of creepy here’s our version of the Family Tree:

  Here are a few more glimpses of the goings-on around here.


  And of course it wouldn’t be a Rogers Halloween without a little bling!

So that’s our progress so far. Oh, I wanted to mention that I’m planning on putting up a few DIY’s of some of the projects we did. If you see something you’re interested in learning how we made, tell me in the comments and I might give a tutorial on the technique. Providing, of course, there’s no full moon at the time… Bwaahahahahaaaa!

    Love the progress. Can’t wait for the opening. I have one request – you always play the greatest creepy music. I was wondering if you could provide the CD’s you use or possibly a list of the MP3 downloads? Last year I had asked about the music but nobody knew what it was. Boo Hoo for me. Thank you so much and we all appreciate the effort you put into your displays.

    Dear, dear Sylvr – thank you a million times for the music list!! I am in the process of acquiring the downloads from Amazon now. They (Amazon) should be thanking you too. My husband and I are coming to see your wonderful creepyness tomorrow (I mean that in a kind way) Can’t wait. Thanks again.
