19 Pics Of My Daughter’s Bedroom Turned Into Hogwarts

Three years ago, my Harry Potter-loving daughter Willow and I decided to turn a wall of her bedroom into Hogwarts. Several bouts of inspiration & hard work later, loads of DIY and some trips to thrift stores, it’s gotten way out of hand: there’s not a single corner of her room that hasn’t been turned into a Harry Potter paradise – without spending tons of money on expensive merchandise.

More info: Facebook

The mural that started it all

The chest was old, rusty and bright green. It now has a golden Hogwarts crest and my daughter’s name in calligraphy on top.

I’m probably most proud of how his cape turned out. Shading took ages!

A very tiny Hagrid’s house on the edge of the Forbidden Forest

The white dots are glow in the dark lights, so at night, the forest lights up – as do some of the Hogwarts windows.

Study corner

With a small-but-growing collection of Funko Pop!s (one of the few things we’re just buying instead of DIYing) and gorgeous velvet curtains.

Details on the desk

With a made-up view and a window inspired by an old church.

Where she sleeps

With a view of Scotland (taken from a Prisoner of Azkaban frame), a painted Gryffindor banner, and books at her disposal at all times.

Books & Gryffindor flag

This is her reading corner under the bed

Cozy pillows, and a fireplace! (And fish. And Dobby.)

Dobby is a freeee elffff

Portrait Gallery

Some Hogwarts things (tiny mirror of Erised, Ariana Dumbledore, Albus Dumbledore), some photos of my daughter, some art postcards, and a huge portrait I painted myself.

Wow. One very talented parent and one lucky girl. I am mid 40’s and would love this room.

The ONLY critique I have is to paint the furniture to match everything else. The white bed stands out too much and the plain black desk is way too modern. Other than that, spectacular job. Daughter must be thrilled.

I feel the same way most of the time. But the bed would have to be sanded first (and thus taken out of the room) and that would be such a hellish project I'm not too eager to do so. We actually had an antique wooden school desk with bench, just like in the painting, but my daughter has since outgrown it, couldn't even get in between the bench and desk anymore, and so we had to get a new one... she picked this one herself. Oh well. ;) Thank you for the compliment, and yes, thankfully, she does love it :)
