How to Decorate a Harry Potter Theme Bedroom

Its hard to think of a book thats ignited fantasy and imagination as the Harry Potter series has done. Parents can enjoy reading the books with their children and design a bedroom to bring those daydreams one step closer.

Start by Decorating the Walls of the Harry Potter Theme Bedroom

The most fun way to paint the walls of a Harry Potter or Hogwarts theme bedroom is by creating castle bricks. To achieve the effect, parents will need three colors of paint from the same paint card. The lightest shade of gray can be used for the mortar between the stones, a medium gray is for the main part of the bricks, and a darker gray is for shading accents.

Begin with a first coat in the lightest gray.Once the bass coat is dry, use masking tape to make grid work across the entire wall leaving large blocks for the stone bricks.Paint over the taping with the medium gray and remove the tape immediately.Once the second coat dries, use dark gray to add shading by outlining two opposite corners of each brick.Bedding, Window Treatments, and Rugs for the Harry Potter Theme Nursery or Bedroom

Parents who want to go all out with the Harry Potter theme in their childs bedroom, can scope out four-poster beds at yard sales, in local papers, or on Craigs List. An antique trunk for the foot of the bed is definitely a must.

Harry Potter bed sets are certainly available. A more affordable alternative though might be a bed set that fits the style of a Hogwarts dormitory. Parents could opt for a bedspread in the Gryffindor colors of burgundy and gold. They could also choose a set decorated with a glittering moon and stars.

For curtains and area rugs, parents will most likely opt for solid burgundy. Accents, like gold cords dinosaur crib bedding reviews for curtain ties are fun possibilities.

Decorating a Harry Potter Theme Nursery or Bedroom

Parents can give the room the magical feel of Hogwarts Great Hall by painting the ceiling a deep blue and applying glow-in-the-dark moon and star stickers.

House banners for Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin can be found inexpensively on-line. These banners are great ways to splash color on the gray castle walls. Posters are another prevalent theme in the Harry Potter books. Parents wont be able to find enchanted moving pictures, but posters of favorite sports teams or scenes from the Harry Potter movies are excellent choices.

A shelf near the bed is the perfect spot to display the Harry Potter books along with any other Harry Potter memorabilia. A stuffed owl, cat, rat, or frog would be perfect additions for topping the bed or chair.

A fun touch might also be a quirky old portrait with elaborate or gilded frame hung outside the childs door. Each dormitory had such a portrait who quizzed students on the secret password before allowing them to enter.

Parents can personalize the room by reading the Harry Potter series with their children at bedtime. This will make the room feel special and fill it with happy memories.

With a little creativity, parents wont need a wand to decorate a Harry Potter theme bedroom or nursery. Its a job even muggles can handle. For more interesting ideas, they can check out articles on princess, airplane, and ocean themes.

These are some of the products I've been loving and using daily for the last 8 weeks, along with the products I've tried and hated. Honest reviews, nothing is sponsored!

Uppababy Stroller - I did a lot of research on strollers and I was picking between the Stokke crusi and the Uppababy. After trying both in stores, I found that I preferred the Uppababy because it was just so much easier to fold down and open up, also the extra storage space was a big plus! Uppababy also makes a carseat, so you don't need an additional att

When baby products meet high-end robotics

FORTUNE Henry Thorne once programmed hulking robots to weld the frames of Buick Regals, Pontiac Grand Prixs, and Chevy Cutlass Supremes on a General Motors GM assembly line. He was one of the key brains behind a six-mile, spark-throwing spectacle that became a symbol of Detroit automation.

Today, Thorne, 53, designs robots for much smaller vehicles that carry much cuter cargo. Hes the engineering brains behind the Origami, the worlds only power-folding stroller.

Created by the Pittsburgh-based firm 4Moms, the Origami has a push-button folding and unfolding mechanism, remote-control lights, a cell p
