What is Diagon Alley?

Diagon Alley is a shopping street in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. It is hidden from the Muggle world and can only be accessed through a magical entrance. It is full of shops selling things like wands, robes, potions, and other magical items. There is also a bank where wizards can exchange currency and deposit their money.

Steps to building a Diagon Alley book nook

The Rolife Magic House DIY Book Nook is a beautiful product that allows Potterheads to bring the wizarding world into their homes. This Diagon Alley book nook has a total of 216 pieces, including the facade, signages, and the whole box of the book nook.

It's an easy snap-together piece that you can build in just minutes!

  • Layout all the pieces first -Laying them flat on your table will help you see what all the pieces available are. This will make the process faster as you continue the build.
  • Build the facade of the buildings - The easiest way to start the building is to put together the facade first. Lay down the large flat pieces (walls) and add the windows, ledges, doorways, etc. You will know if the pieces are stuck together correctly if you hear an audible snap.
  • Build the details- Once you're done with all the large solid structures, you can go ahead and build the more minor details of your Diagon Alley book nook. Included in the kit are store signages, light sources, etc.
  • Color in details- The parts come pre-colored, but there will be some parts wherein you need to add some pigments. This part is where you can make your bookshelf insert your own. You can change the pigment, strokes, whatever it is to make it your own creation!
  • Do a Final Check - Before you store it wherever you want, do a last check of all the pieces. Make sure that everything is snapped together so that you won't have anything falling off in the long run.
  • Clear space on your shelf- Once you're done with the whole build, you can go ahead and find the perfect spot for your Diagon Alley book nook. This would be perfect if in between a few sets of books with a darker shade so that it would blend in. If the miniature house kit is the same shade or color as your wall, you can lay it right beside a wall as if it was protruding out of it. You can even just leave this on your desk, a little reminder of the Wizarding World. Make sure that wherever you place your Diagon Alley book nook, it is away from moisture and possible fire hazards.
