Woman Creates Spellbinding 'Harry Potter' Themed Room For Her Daughter

A mum has transformed her daughter's bedroom into a magical Harry Potter-themed space - and the whole thing cost her just £250.

Amy Pritchard, 28, from Hull, made a deal with her nine-year-old daughter Ruby that if she kept her bedroom tidy for a month, she'd get the HP bedroom she'd always wanted.

With Ruby keeping her room spic and span as promised, Amy also stuck to her word, transforming her daughter's plain pink and lilac bedroom into something far more magical.

"Ruby has been obsessed with Harry Potter for years so she's been nagging me for a Harry Potter bedroom for ages," the mum-of-three told LatestDeals.co.uk.

"She's not really a girly girl. Before, it used to have just the Harry Potter wall vinyl above her bed but it didn't really match anything and she hated the pink and lilac!

Amy then set about transforming the space, heading to B&M and eBay for the bulk of her supplies.

"We all went to B&M one afternoon for some wallpaper for my hallway and came across the Harry Potter wallpaper and she loved it," said Amy, who is training to be a teaching assistant while running a small soap business from home.

"When we were talking to her about how she wanted it she said she wanted a platform nine and three quarters wall, so we came up with the brick wallpaper and the sign."

She added: "The broomstick she bought out of her birthday money a few years ago from Harry Potter Studios. It was just stood up in the corner of her room so we wall mounted that with some hooks.

"For the mirrors, she wanted it to look like she had windows in her bedroom like Hogwarts so I searched Google for window mirrors and found this on eBay for £14.

"The light fitting was second hand from a selling site, and Ruby said it looked like the candle ceiling at Hogwarts."

Amy explained: "Everything purchased was from B&M and ebay: the bedding was from ebay for £14, the curtains were from ebay at £20, the wallpaper was from B&M and cost £11.99 for the Harry Potter wallpaper and £6 for the brick wallpaper.

"The platform nine and three quarters sign was from eBay for £20, and the bed from B&M was £120. It's an ottoman bed as we need storage space so we use underneath the bed.

"We also needed some tie backs so we searched Pinterest and found some with ties so we used that idea and bought two Gryffindor ties for her tie back for £1.50 each.

"Between us, we just searched all over the internet for Harry Potter bedrooms and took a bit of inspiration from various different pictures."

How amazing are the results?
