We're working on slowly expanding our western themed yard haunt. It has now been named Restless, TX. We built a shack for our resident witch, who controls the poor residents of Restless. She has doomed them to wonder the town forever - their flesh has long rotted away!

We've got more details to add, so be sure to check back. Still working on a sign, bone wind chimes, potions rack and a couple other things.

Here are some build pictures, and well as some setup pictures from today.

Thanks everyone!

Just thought I'd add some more pictures of the whole setup. We were going to build a rocking witch prop for the rocking chair, but ran out of time and motivation. So we'll have a skeleton witch filling in.













And, here is one of our cat hanging out with her new buddies...

What a way cool theme - I really like it. Looks like to me that saddle tramp took to long getting the trail dust off him so he could be with the pretty lady !

Your cat seems to be tolerating its friends as well :D

That third cat is so lifelike! You must have been running low on black paint, though; there's some white patches showing through. ;)

...oh yeah. And the rest of your haunt is A-FLIPPING-MAZING!! love it! :D

Love it. How did you get the wood to look old? Did you use the vinegar and steel wool method or just stain? If stain, what color?

Since this post was from last year, just thought I'd put up a couple pics of the shack from this year...

We built a back for it and setup a scene inside. It looks pretty cool at night - we have a green fire and ice spotlight setup inside. Don't have any night pics yet though.
