Moved last year and there's a cute playhouse under the stairs.  Well, my girls are older and haven't been interested in using it so it's just been storage.  It's in the plan that this whole area will be bookshelves and become a hidden room (like our last one! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430351.0 ) but with all the other projects to get done and a year on the list already I finally got tired enough of the playhouse to bring it down.  And what better way to replace than a HP mural!  Although, again it will be covered up in whatever amount of time, so I didn't want to make it too fancy.  Saw the idea for silhouettes on youtube by ML Stein, and thought "brilliant!" So chopped the playhouse down and put up my silhouettes.  


Hagrid and pumpkins are by his hut.  Ron, Hermione, Harry, and Dobby at the right.  My girls are mad that Harry is in the trio and on the broomstick at the top.  Told them on the broom must be Oliver Wood, lol.  



Sweet little house.
 

In progress.
Tree in the back will be repainted.  Was going to repaint as the whomping willow, but now I've already got one, so I don't know what he'll be yet.  Probably a whole diagon alley back there.



I love it!  
DH loves it so much, he's already started to take pictures off the wall in other areas so we can repaint the entire movie room.  So maybe in a few weeks I'll show off the whole HP room.  The family room has been movie themed from before we moved, but I think we are all turning into such Potterheads that we are flipping into total HP.  My 13 year old just bought herself a $50 handturned wand!  So we are all crazies.

Thanks for looking Smiley

Sorry if old pics aren't showing.  Photobucket thinks I want to go from free to $400??! Nope.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

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

This is awesome! I'm sad you moved away from your hidden room, but I know you will make this house just as epic, if not more so.

Looking forward to seeing more transformations!

Ooohhh!  This came out so beautifully!  But I totally think you need a glowing patronus coming from the little window, as though it's just emerged from the forest.
