Hidden Door




Introduction: Hidden Door

About: I like to turn trash into useful treasures. I believe less gives you time for MORE in your life. I love riding motorcycles.

I found a broken bunk bed in the trash. I used the side rails to make a box to block the entrance to the hall.

    You have great ideas but your instructions are lacking detail.

    I will be happy to go over any parts if there is any questions. I am not one for reading directions so I try to limit mine. In cooking I just snap a photo of the ingredients and wing it. I took more photos during the process but they got deleted. I can take more of the door if that would help. Thanks for liking my idea.

    This is a great idea, and blends in just as well as the table!
