Gun safe disguise

by Lynda
Any ideas on how to disguise a large gun safe? Ours sits in our dining room and my hubby won't let me move it!

    @lynda I would build a false façade around it.

      @lynda A lot depends on the décor of your dining room to begin with & the entry mechanism into the safe & how disguiseable that part might be . I can see one possibly being somewhat disguised or at least incorporated into the theme / feel of the room but most of them would require painting it, or skinning it out in a veneer or even leather maybe. We actually need a gun safe, but I have the same problem as you apparently do, where to put the monster & make it look nice!

    Send him hunting, & while he's gone paint it with chalk paint, & slap a pretty graphic from the graphics fairy on the front of it..... I don't know, that's going to be a hard one to solve!

      That is a great idea!!! I'm still laughing! I'm going to give it one more later on when he asks me what I want for my birthday or Christmas 😉!!

    A 3- or 5-panel accordion screen? Post pix if you can.

      That would be a good idea Becky, however the thing sits in a area where I couldn't use a screen (smack up next to a door!). Oh well, it's been there long before me and will probably be there long after me too! Thanks so much for your help though.

    What kind of front does it have? If it glass, the easy solution would be to put a decorative window film on the inside of the door. Or...........Pick a fabric you like and hang a "curtain" inside the glass.
