A man spent almost two years turning his garage into his very own Harry Potter world. Check out the results in the video below:
Thirty-year-old Brian Thompson, from California, was so impressed by a visit to Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Hollywood, he decided to try and recreate it in his own home.
Initially hoping to have it finished in time for Halloween last year, Brian hit a few snags on the way but didn't give up.
Sticking to a tight budget, he managed to completely transform his garage without breaking the bank - estimating he's spent between $2,500-3,000 (£1,900-2,300) on the entire project.
He told LADbible: "Since I was a kid, I've always been obsessed with theme parks. I just love how you can feel like you're entering a new world that was created purely out of human imagination. To come up with a world in your mind, and bring it to life... that was magic to me.
"During my first visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Hollywood, I had never been more impressed and bewildered by such a grand creation.
"I had to have my own little piece of that world for my own. So, I started with trying to replicate the enchanted sky in the great hall by making a ceiling with start, then I just couldn't stop!"
Brian kept costs down by doing all the work himself and has been flooded with comments after sharing his efforts online.
He added: "People seem to be most impressed with the ceiling. Many Harry Potter fans have said if that was their room they'd never leave!
"People have said the most amazing things to me about the quality of my work and that honestly has been my fuel to keep pushing on. You never know how far a compliment will go, even if it's a simple comment online.
"I feel like this project wasn't just done for my own pleasure, but to also show people that even without tons of money and resources, we all still have the ability to make magic happen."
Although the whole room looks absolutely incredible, Brian is particularly proud of one aspect.
"My personal favourite is the ceiling," he said. "The perimeter of my room is lined with mirrors along the top of the walls to give the stars an infinity effect.
"When you're in the room walking around, it really does look like the stars continue beyond the walls."
Nice work, mate.
