This Woman Upcycles Pink Plastic Dollhouses Into Beautiful Haunted Mansions

When Barbie came out in the 1950s, her original look didn’t have a smidgen of pink in it. Over the years, however, toy manufacturers developed a tendency to paint everything doll-related pink. Now, Mattel (the company that owns Barbie) even has a copyrighted color called Barbie Pink.

But one crafty woman has just shown that dolls don’t need to bathe in pink all the time. They, or rather their surroundings, look good in other colors, too.

Mom and wife Samantha Browning has been watching TikToks in her free time and saw a woman on there who had spray-painted a wooden dollhouse black. Samantha thought that was an awesome idea, so during one of her many thrift shop trips, she picked up a dollhouse for $8, got some matte black spray paint and acrylic paint, and went to work.

“The next two dollhouses were a bit more money,” Samantha told Bored Panda. “I found them on the Facebook Marketplace for $25 but thought they were worth the money because the designs were really beautiful. The last one I found was only $1 and I haven’t started on it yet but I think once I do it will be one of the best. It has a very modern look to it so I can expand a bit more with the details.”
