Our family room was filled with lots of movie memorabilia.  Everything from Star Trek, Hunger Games, Twilight, Tron, Green Lantern, Harry Potter and beyond.  We ended up moving to this house last year and have been meaning to do another secret room [https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430351.0] so when there was a sweet playhouse in the family room I wasn't too worried about it.  Flash forward a year and we didn't look like we would be getting to it in another year so I broke it down and turned it into a fun Hogwarts scene [https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452570.0]

Well, DH loved it so much that he wanted to make the room total Harry Potter.  When DH suggested it I kind of laughed it off like he's the Star Trek guru, there's no way he'd get rid of his precious memorabilia.  He kept talking about it and decided we should do it before we had a family party at our house ...the very next month.  I was shocked when he started taking down pictures off the wall in preparation.  I thought "oh great, here we go!" I wasn't expecting to do the whole room when I painted the side wall!  .....and a month later.  Boom.  Here we are.

Hogwarts as a silhouette looks so much more at home now!

Display cabinets and I love the metal house crests above the tv.  Bought online.

Copied from a cool vinyl idea off pinterest.  Got all the vinyl to do it and went....eh, that's too much work for all that vinyl and painted it by hand, lol.  Took me four hours still but imagining digging out all those extra vinyl pieces seemed too much.  Now too, if we end up not wanting it it can just be painted over instead of a thousand stickers peeled off.  ..... If you remember from the silhoettes wall this area is going to be covered up by bookshelves and hidden rooms ...eventually... so too much work to be covered eventually but oh well.  Awesome in the meantime.  

Hand painted Marauders Map.  The tiny words of the whomping willow and black lake were done in one three hour sitting and I actually gave myself nerve damage in the tip of my painting finger!  It was numb for three days!  ... Dumb one PattyO.  Take breaks.

Room is supposed to be painted like a giant Marauders Map.  Little tiny feet prints and name banners are around.  We did paint the room, but the color is so close to the original color it's hard to tell.  It went from a solid tan to a treasure map tone faux finish.


Snape's Potion cabinet

Before and Progress

If you want a more in depth walk through, head to youtube.  It's fun to see how many swap items are on display too!  Lots of you guys helped make this room!

And don't forget the Honeyduke's Candy Cabinet!  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452918.0

Man!  Even with thirty pictures, I don't feel like it's done justice to how cool I think this room is.  Oh well.
But now I'm dying to host a Harry Potter movie night!  Who's coming?!

Looks amazing!  And I love seeing all the little Craftster touches in there too, like pinkleo's afghan and FiberAlchemist's throw pillows!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
