This Woman Painted The First Page Of "Harry Potter" On Her Wall

We solemnly swear she's up to something so, so good.

Author Meredith McCardle decided to bless her life recently by devoting a wall in her home to the first page of the Harry Potter series.

So I hand painted the first page of Harry Potter on my wall because I'm a huge nerd. #hpforever @jk_rowling

She went line by line and basically transformed her space into a literal Harry Potter book with the SHEER MAGIC OF DIY.

So how'd she do it? McCardle tells BuzzFeed that she started with a projector she borrowed from an elementary school, and traced the projection in pencil.

Then she went back and painted in each letter.

She also had some tips for anyone looking to try this at home:

1) "Measure each line as you go and don't rely on the projector to stay straight. I learned that the hard way."

2) "Use good quality paint. Trust me when I say you will not want to do a second coat."

3) "If there's such a thing as a pencil that doesn't smudge, use it!"

And when you're done you'll have a little bit of πŸ’«wizardryπŸ’« in your home.
