A creative mum has revealed how she transformed her boring bathroom into a Harry Potter paradise for just £64.

Leah Fox decided to sprinkle a bit of magic over her downstairs bathroom for her eight-year-old daughter Aaliyah - who is a big fan of the movies.

The mum-of-one printed out 120 pages of the Daily Prophet, the fictional franchise's newspaper, which she then used as a wallpaper.

The receptionist from Brighton said: "Before, the toilet was a bit plain and boring so I decided to redecorate it myself.

"I have a massive passion for interior design and I was inspired by the Harry Potter studios in Watford and by watching all the films.

"I like anything alternative and quirky and love Harry Potter because it's fun, lighthearted and has a bit of character so that's why I went for the theme."

She also picked up a £2 sticker for the toilet

With the help from her daughter's dad, the 37-year-old managed to complete the magical transformation in just two days.

"I thought it would be a good idea to lay them all out in order and wallpaper them to the toilet walls with normal wallpaper paste, which worked really well."

The transformation only cost her £64

She added: "Once I started, I decided to run with it and see how it went, and it took about two days to finish."

She then added a few extra touches including a £2 'This way to the Ministry of Magic' sticker on the toilet cistern, which is a canny reference to the series where a loo is used as an employee entryway to the wizarding world's London headquarters.

She also snapped up two Halloween cages for £1 each, a Hufflepuff scarf, broom, bauble and pygmy puff toys for £17.

She also found some other bargains in charity shops.

When mum posted pictures of the renovation on Facebook within a day it went viral, with other Potter-mad fans complimenting her work.

Leah added: "It's not for everyone but I love it - I like to be a bit different and it's just something interesting to look at.

"When people go in to use the toilet, they're a bit shocked by it at first but then they think it's awesome.

"Since I posted it online, everyone wants to come round and use the toilet!

"My daughter's reaction was great - she was squealing with excitement and reading all the pictures, pointing out who's who from the film."
