Dad turns cupboard under the stairs into amazing Harry Potter snug for his son with Lidl and eBay bargains

A DAD has transformed the cupboard under the stairs into a magical space Harry Potter would actually like to live in.

Creative Louis turned the space into a snug for his Harry-Potter loving son – with exposed brick walls and quotes from the series.

Mum Emma shared the finished object on Facebook's DIY on a Budget group, writing: "Little Harry potter cupboard under the stairs for our little boy".

The parents bought bargains from eBay and Lidl, with the entire project costing £184.55.

Emma told Fabulous: "It was my partner who did all the hard work along with our 19 month old son. It was a father and son project.

"Brick walls were painted using a sponge, carpet was specially made from eBay, wallpaper bookcase and all stickers were also eBay and the light was from Lidl.

"It was previously used as a storage cupboard."
