Unless you’re the Dursleys, we’re pretty certain any home-improvement project that involves a theme as magical as Harry Potter is worth the investment. Such is the case with one Connecticut dad, who recreated Harry’s cupboard under the stairs in his very own home.

Peter Fragola, father of two, must be a wizard, because the results are downright magical. (Use the white arrows on the Instagram above to see all the pictures.) From Daily Prophet clips covering the walls to memorable quotes painted on each of the ascending steps, the cozy crawlspace-turned-reading-nook brings J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world to life. There’s even a snowy white (stuffed) owl perched on a shelf in the corner.

While Harry’s real cupboard at 4 Privet Drive wasn’t much to look at, we wouldn’t mind cuddling up with a book in this real-world adaptation.

Now if only we could get our Floo powder to work, we’d be apparating to this cupboard stat.
