What are the signature aspects of a doll’s house? Lace doilies, floral bedspreads, and maybe a chandelier?
How about an all-black interior, boarded-up windows, and a skeleton wreath adorning the front door?
It’s September now, so we finally agree that it’s a spooky season.
And one Tik Tok user, @eatsleepletter, known as Haley, wanted to tackle the challenge of transforming a child’s dolls house into something a little spookier.
Her decorating spared no expense, detailing everything from coffin-shaped shelves to an abundance of miniature curio and ornaments taking pride of place on the fireplace.
It was executed with such creativity and style that it wouldn’t look far out of place on an episode of American Horror Story, a thing of blood-curdling beauty rather than a child’s plaything. Cue The Rolling Stone’s Paint It Black.
Frankly, the starting product couldn’t be further from the end product, introduced in a garish color palette of pink and purple with gold detailing.
Over the course of six videos uploaded to Tik Tok, however, Haley transformed the pocket-sized house into something that The Addams Family would be proud to call home.
Think bold white and black striped bedsheets gracing the bed, reminiscent of an interior design that Beetlejuice would revel in.

Looking inside the Tik Tok videos demonstrating the transformation, Haley’s gothic touch reaches every corner of the house.
A fruit arrangement is replaced with a bowl of eyeballs, a coffin-shaped shelf made out of popsicle sticks hosts tiny books of potions and spells, cool silver accents replace the original gold, all bathed in the light of lamps embellished with plastic ribcages and bones, not to mention the copious amount of black paint.
Many of us picked up lockdown projects and hobbies, exploring our creative side, and whilst some of us produced creative endeavors galore, Haley’s seems to take the biscuit.
So much so that compilation videos of the entire doll’s house renovation have made it onto the Facebook accounts of Buzzfeed and the like.
If dark corners and cobweb-covered hallways in miniature form don’t give you the creeps, why not give a similar pursuit a go and dig out your old doll’s house from the loft.
