Tried this craft? What did you think?

I love this! Maybe for things that children should not be able to reach. Or maybe if it was a bit bigger, a secret room, where you can hide if something bad happens. Just my imagination.

I love the idea of having secret storage cabinets. My brother taught me a lot of carpentry skills so I know I can make this. The first one will be in my kitchen with a chalkboard door. The second one will be in my bedroom for my pistols and ammo. It will be smaller so I have the perfect painting to use for the door. Two thumbs up on this idea!

This is so cool! I totally don't have the skills to do it, but I'd love to be able to someday!

We actually did this using the space between the studs to create a medicine cabinet above the sink. It also helps if you don't want to bang your head on a protruding cabinet, in addition to the safety factor. Making the cover of the cabinet a mirror with a frame or perhaps even a painting in a frame can really help camouflage the true hidden space. Great idea for keeping what you need to hide hidden and safe. Thanks for sharing!

If you have kids at home and you need to keep sharp objects away from, then you need to build something like this DIY secret storage. I suggest to place this storage where kids will not be able to reach them. Another way to use this secret storage is for all your important documents. Maybe place it inside you room or closet and provide a lock for it.

I LOVE this idea! I can't wait to try this.

Ah! This is so cool!

I love hidden compartments and rooms! This secret cabinet would be such a cool addition as a storage space.
