    Haunted House conversion

    I was commissioned to convert a beat up Fisher Price Dollhouse into a Haunted House. The buyer wants a place to display some horror figures (I'm assuming ReAction or old Remcos), so I added lights. I'm extremely proud of the finished piece.

    Your pride is warranted, that's really impressive work! How long does something like this take?

    Your paint job is impressive - it looks better than new! It's reminiscent, to me, of the Lego haunted house that came out a few years back... they'd make great shelf-buddies!

    Thank you very much! It's tricky to give an accurate estimate, it took me a bit to disassemble and clean it initially; and the plotting and installation of the lights took a couple hours. Start to finish was right at 2 weeks with accommodating weather (for spraying outside). But I think a lot of my time was being extra cautious with a piece I was handling for the first time and didn't want to break/ruin it. I'm working on the second one I picked up and it's coming along really fast by comparison (like 15 minutes to disassemble the second one), I'm hoping I can have the second one finished in half the time with less accommodating weather.
