When Courtney Bonnet moved into her new home in Pennsylvania in June, one of the first things she noticed was a cupboard under the stairs. Even though the children’s librarian wasn’t exactly thrilled about the rest of the house, like any true ‘Harry Potter’ fan, she knew exactly what she wanted to do with the cupboard!
So the mom-of-two went to work. Inspired by the young wizard’s residence at 4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey, Bonnet created a ‘Wizards Only’ space for her young sons, who absolutely love the ‘Harry Potter’-themed room.
Bonnet used pages from the first book as wallpaper, hung up a Harry Potter poster, put the house crests for Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin, and added various other decorations, such as an adorable Hedwig light-pull. She took a full eight days in order to complete the project, but the final result was definitely worth it.
Bonnet said that her sons play hide-and-seek and their friends love to check the cupboard out when they come over. She also added that the series really changed her life, and she’s looking forward to reading the Harry Potter series to her boys in the cupboard.
