the concept is a bookcase built-in that can swivel to reveal an entrance to a room.
When my home was constructed I saved some money on interior doors by having archways installed. this is pretty cool for open rooms like my dining room and game room, but for my theater not so much. you really need it dark in there to enjoy a movie. In my head I have pondered adding a regular door, but then I saw an instructable for using IKEA bookcases as a hidden door partition and it clicked what I wanted to do.
Objective was to achieve a hidden door look, mix in my love of Star Wars and close off the theater.
Aprroximate total cost was about $150
(little quick edit here, just to be clear it's $150 not including Han, which if it's a DIY sculpt could be a few bucks or for a custom made or even licensed product could be $$$$$. I will hopefully be adding in some info on how to get at least the face casts, like you see on my wall outside the theater)
update: added a vid of the finished product, it also shows the bookcase out of the archway.
Step 1: Determine the size of the opening
I wanted a built in look, with 3 sections. this allowed me to have the certain bookcase be my "door"
My approach was to find a way to have the bookcases appear to be static, yet roll open when needed.
As you can see in the photo, I have an arch to deal with as well as an opening of about 59"
I decided to get 2 CD towers from IKEA (Billy model) and one 30" bookcase from Walmart.
