I have a confession to make. I'm 51-years-old and have just now discovered Harry Potter. I knew about the fandom insanity swirling around book and movie premiers, but I didn't pay much attention at the time. That was until last fall when I discovered how many credits I had on my Audible account. How about a book series? Harry Potter? M'kay, why not? *poof*
Damn you, J.K. Rowling! I'm hooked. I'm completely obsessed with the whole Potter world. I love the books and movies and can't wait to throw a Hogwarts party. I'm like a dog with a bone when I get obsessed about something immersing myself completely and love to use these inspirations in my creations.
Part of the charm of the stories is how creative the fan base can be; it's a lot like Doctor Who in that respect. I love the crafts that have been inspired from all the HP stories and, of course, I want to try them all! I've started making wands (I'll post later) and because I've been wanting to do some altered bottles, a potions cabinet was a must to create.
First, I had to find a shelf. Thrift shops usually have some sort of shallow, spice cabinet shelves hanging around, so I was off to Goodwill and found this:
So there you have it. I hope you've enjoyed watching this transformation and think about doing one yourself! I would love to see your creations!
Thanks for reading and leave me a comment and links to your work. x
