Now I have to decide if I should paint this wall and the one behind the cabinets black and outline the grout lines with the orange paint. . . Thoughts?

Looks great so far can't wait to see the finished product. Having a room with the right ambience is a must for carving.

Having the walls black might make it a bit to dark, how about orange with black outline and on each block on the wall have some sort of pumpkin design.

You're so lucky to have such a great space dedicated to carving. Your own mad scientist dungeon or pumpkin torture chamber if you will. I'd have skelletons and all manner of creature down there all year round. Cobwebs, candles, potions and poisons, jars of goodness knows what. Just don't let your neighbours see it between the months of November and September. :lol:
Great work so far. :)

Ok so I have a proposition for you. Are you up for adopting a female in her late 20's and her 3-ish son? We do windows :D

I really love the crackle paint. It makes it look old and spooky.

Etsy (and I'm sure other sites) has a lot of cool Halloween wall decals.

Of course, you could put a lot of ZP patterns on the black walls too.
