How to make a fairy room in your house. You know, for kids.

Though we certainly love buying the latest nerdy collectibles from the comic shop, there's something about good old-fashioned geek craftsmanship that just warms our hearts. Here's someone who built a little parlor for a fairy inside a wall to make kids happy, because it's not like we adults would think this was totally awesome and want to replicate it or anything.

This whimsical little project comes from reddit user macmac1, who cut a hole in a wall just big enough for a fairy to fit through, then crafted a tiny room complete with furniture to attach to the other side (conveniently inside a closet so the whole wall didn't have to be ripped apart).

"I did it just for fun," macmac1 said. "I'm a children's book author and thought it was something easy to do and very cool to have and it also inspired me to write some stories."

In the pics below you can see the finished room detached from its place inside the wall, along with a shot of the room's blue door closed, which gives you an idea of how big it is and reveals the closet the room is hidden in.

This looks like a fairly simple project that even someone who's never seen the inside of a hardware store could pull off in a weekend (the lights inside the room are even battery-powered, so there's no need to fiddle with wiring), and the result is a magical little addition to a home that will probably make the adults just as happy as the children.
