In the information lately, there have been stories of folks placing cameras on the outside the house of peepholes to see into your house/condominium/hotel area. I (Steph) started contemplating about the peephole in my entrance doorway and probable means of masking it when not in use.
Immediately after much considered, I arrived up with a Diy remedy that is cute, purposeful, removable and adds a minimal a lot more security to my dwelling.

We began with 5 substantial popsicle sticks. We created a guide to hold the sticks even though we duct taped them with each other.
We measured and minimize the sticks to cover the base and leading. We very easily lower via the sticks with scissors. We sanded the edges a small bit and glued the sticks in put.
To make the X sample on the door, we calculated and lower the sticks once more. It took a several tries to get the right reduce on the sticks, but we experienced a great deal of additional sticks to practice with.
Right before we glued the X in area, we stained the doorway and X-pattern. We made use of a dark stain we by now had from a further undertaking. After the stain dried, we glued the X in location.
To make the barn door go, we applied 6 Lego items. I have a large Lego collection so this came from my private stash. If you are not into Legos, you can in all probability do this with modest wheels from the hardware store. We additional a fifty percent pin to a wheel, and attached a 1 x4 tile to that. The wheel rolls very effortlessly.
We utilized Sugru to connect the deal with and wheels in position.
