Step 1: Materials

1. Screwdriver
2. Wall socket
3. Brain :P
4. Pliers (Optional)
5. Valuables

Step 2: Find Socket

It has to be one of the TV ones. (or I think thats what it's for)

Step 3: Take Off the Cover

When you find one take the screw driver and unscrew the socket. When you unscrew the socket there is a wire. If you will never use the socket separate the socket and the wire. If you will use the socket again try to move the wire out of the way.

Step 4: At Last!

As you can tell there is a hole/container in the wall. That's where you can store your valuables. Once you put your valuables in the hole close up the socket and no one will know what's there but you. (Unless you tell someone, of course)

    A little tip for next time-- if you can increase the amount of diffused light (light that isn't directly shining on the target, sunlight is really good), and then change some settings in your camera (if it's sophisticated enough) to allow for allowing more light. Also, a tripod can help with lighting (since it allows for a slower shutter speed). All I'm getting at here is it was the lighting that meant there was too much yellow.

    Good luck with your next creation!

    This idea has already been done by the kingofrandome but it is still a great idea and if you put a cardboard square wedged in the back you will be able to keep your hair(:

    It's a clever idea, but you can actually buy fake sockets that are actually drawers that open once you stick a key into one of the plug holes (Because let's be honest, who would be stupid enough to stick a small metal key into a socket?)

    Also just to clarify, that is a coaxial output socket, I wouldn't try this with any other socket type. I was about to suggest a better alternative, but I might make my own instructable for it, haha.
