I'm so glad I stumbled onto this forum. You guys have the best ideas. My mind has been racing to add to my haunt this year. I've decided to try my hand in boarding up my windows vs creating displays in them. I have 8 windows total, 4 on each side of my front door. They bow out so boarding across all 4 is impossible. I found some thin wood planks in Home Depot that I played around with and also a foamular board I cut up into planks. The wood I just stained and I'd nail together, 6 planks per window. That was the easy option, I'm just worried about the weight. Any ideas on a hanging method? I bought industrial strength Velcro, thought about sticking it right onto the glass. My second option was the foam. I cut 6 pieces up and gave a coat of black paint. Home Depot was closing so I rushed into buying Rustoleum black latex paint. Supposedly its "fast drying" but as of this morning there were still wet spots. I will still need to give a second coat for the wood color. So the latter will be more time consuming but maybe easier to hang in the long run. Any suggestions?? Also any ideas for a more "menacing" looking fence to surround my house? I painted 4 ft garden stakes 3 years ago and connected them with homemade barbed wire, but I'd love something a little taller and "iron" looking, maybe with some pointed tops. I'm so sorry this is long, thanks for reading, my husband thinks I've lost my mind. Maybe I have. Here's my progress so far on the boards.
