My Secret Jewelry Door


I love DIY secret hideaways. So, I took down my bathroom door. My husband cooperates cause he knows the finished project looks great. But, I get a lot of crazy looks. Lol

Small bathroom access door.

This part was tricky since the cardboard combs inside had to be sprayed with water to prevent fire. I used a cutting blad on my grinder. I cut straighter this way.

A box was made with 1x2 frame and cork attached to luan board. It was inserted into the hole, trimmed for hinge attachment.

A shallow box frame with cork on a luan backboard was inserted. Trim holds the box in place and allowed hinge placement of the dressing mirror. The cork was doubled so pushpins would fit in better.

    Just to be clear, are you removing the honeycomb cardboard also?

    Love this idea! Would you have any suggestions for doing this on a 6 panel door?

    would it make noise because i don't want anyone to be unsure about the the noise and where it's coming from.

      I think it is the door to the master bath and since only 2 people would be in the room they would soon learn to know what any noise is if one of them is at the "jewelry box".
