In the news lately there have been reports of people putting cameras on the outside of peepholes to see into your house/apartment/hotel room. I (Steph) started thinking about the peephole in my front door and possible ways of covering it when not in use.
After much thought, I came up with a DIY solution that is cute, functional, removable, and adds a little more security to my home. Mom helped bring the idea into reality and had most of the materials we used in her craft stash! Watch the video above to see it come together.
And here it is...a little barn door for my front door peephole!
I don't use my front door that much and I don't have kids so I decided just having it hang by the wheels was secure enough for my needs. But with different doors/lots of slamming you might need to secure yours in a different way. Adding a few magnets (for metal front doors) might do the trick!
What other ideas do you have for peephole safety? Leave ideas in the comments below!
