Last month, my blog idol Ana White contacted me to be a contributor on her blog. Cue squeals of glee. I mean, seriously, does it get any better? I submit an idea, she draws up the plans, and I build it. Awesome! I knew at once what my first project was going to be. And where did the idea come from? Duh! Pinterest!
Isn’t it an amazing idea? It was the perfect solution to our gun storage conundrum. As a temporary setup we were storing the Husbane’s 20+ weapons in our entry closet, with a deadbolt that requires a key. Not exactly the greatest thing, since it totally killed a useful closet. Now, we built this awesome bookcase/door for his mancave, complete with hidden deadbolt! It’s pretty much the best thing ever.
To see the plans on how to build your own, hop on over to Ana’s site and check them out! Here’s another angle
The supplies only cost $52, and we re-used the regular door hinges. We purchased some fancy pants trim, 1) because the door frame is unsquare, so it had a lot of gaps to hide and 2) we could router out a space to completely hide the hinges
Again, totally go visit Ana’s site and download the plans! I already have dreams of adding another one in our entry closet
