Who doesn’t want their very own secret room?! I have dreamed of having one ever since I was a child. I can remember going on new home tours when I was really young and being amazed by the big mansions with secret hideaways.

I very clearly remember one home had a loft above the master bedroom but no one could figure out how to get to it. Everyone was stumped and I was determined to figure out the secret LOL. I remember looking for the secret switch somewhere that would open up a hidden door.

Never found it. But, now that I am older, the dream still lives.

I found this amazing series of photos that walks you through from start to finish the building of a hidden room bookcase. I know I don’t have these kind of carpentry skills, but it’s still fun to read and dream!
