I love secret hiding places and a tidy house, so I was so happy when I thought of transforming the mirror into a secret cupboard.
For any guest the mirror might look like a regular one. They may also think that we are incredible tidy.
Behind the mirror, hubby made a small cupboard.
We can use it to hide the keys and small bits&pieces.
It took hubby less than 30 minutes and the materials were a few pounds. I don’t take into consideration the mirror, as we already had it. We bought some cheap magnets from ebay, a couple of hinges and small hooks from B&Q.
Hubby started by fixing the hinges into the mirror with small screws. Then he fixed the mirror on the wall with the special type of screws, the ones with the anchors.
Then he fixed a small metal nut in the wall with an electric screwdriver. He placed the magnets on the nut. These are neodymium magnets, small and powerfull.
On the side of the mirror he reused the original mirror hook because he needed something metallic to stick to the magnets.
That’s it. The mirror will close nicely with and it will stay shut even if there is draft, we’ve tested it.
Hope you like my DIY. Leave me a link with any projects you did, I’m always looking for new ideas.
