Learn how to convert an existing door into a bookcase; includes step-by-step instructions along with tips.

I'm fascinated by hidden rooms and secret passageways. Although the intent here was not so much to create a clandestine corridor to a cloak-and-dagger space as it was to eliminate some unattractive doors and add much needed storage and display space, it nonetheless allowed me to fantasize bit. It's a great way to add some visual interest, especially to a smaller room and, of course, the shelving is perfect for books, photos and decorative objects. Because this is a swinging door, though, make sure whatever is placed on the shelves has a stable base and does not tip easily. Here, this was an adult project, but kids would love it.

The clamp-on straightedge used in this project is very handy for accurately cutting panels out of plywood sheets.
