Harry Potter Fan Paints First Page Of “Sorcerer’s Stone” Onto Her Wall

What can you accomplish in 60+ hours? Learn calculus. Read the Harry Potter series in its entirety. Or paint the first page of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone on your wall. The final item in this list is what avid Harry Potter fan and published author Meredith McCardle decided to undertake, believing that it would be a fun weekend project. 60+ hours over three week later, this past Monday, McCardle finished this Herculean task.

McCardle told Huffington Post that she originally planned to paint a French poem on the wall, but “[a] friend pointed out that one, I don’t speak French, and two, I’m not a poet, so she encouraged me to pick something a little more personal,” she said. As someone who writes that “Harry Potter is a religion” on her Twitter profile, the next-best choice was obvious!

As for the challenges? “The hardest part was keeping the projector straight,” McCardle told Fashion Life. “I had to redo the first paragraph because it was crooked, and from that point on, I had to measure line by line and adjust the projector as I go.”

It looks cool, but this page is just about the dursleys... lol. Not my favourite family. Maybe a favourite page or a page from a favourite scene?
