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.
Great work so far.
Oh yes, this will be my year round Halloween room for sure! We were a bit short on time this year, but we have many plans for the future. When we first looked at this house to buy it. . I told my husband. . . OMG check out this space for carving pumpkins!! hehehheh
