Can you post a picture with it closed, hanging in the wall?

It looks great!

Wouldn’t it be better to have the hinge at the base? Otherwise, great design.

I am actually going to remove the hinges and put them on the inside so they are hidden. :+1::+1:

What I am suggesting is the storage unit door open down, not up.

Once I get the new hinges I think thats what I am going to do. I am sure it will work much better that way. :+1:

IMHO, Being a custom framer for over 30 years, my recommendation, if it’s for concealment purposes, inset it into the wall. In addition a canvas painting or reproductions on canvas will justify the depth, by hollowing out the face of the frame. Canvases are easily changed out compared to paper borne artwork.

Nice work.

Inset it a little crooked. Then add a fake wire hanger and attach it to a nail. Make some drywall cracks around the nail… sort of like this…

Though if a thief is OCD… that may be a downfall.
