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, especailly 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.  If you'd like more information about this tool, you can find it by clicking here.
