Crave Worthy: Anthropologie Secret Cabinet

I've always wanted one of those bookshelves like you see in movies, where lifting one strategic book causes the shelf to spin around and reveal a secret passageway. But for now, I'll settle for the Anthropologie Secret Cabinet ($1,998). Though this blue-gray chest looks like a five-drawer dresser, it's actually a cabinet, with a single door that swings open to reveal bright yellow shelves. Not only is this fun, but it would be a great way to store clutter without it ever looking messy.

looks like something you'd buy at Kirkland's or some cheap place. Way overpriced.

Sorry but not for me. Don't like the way it looks all cut up & the price is overkill.

Not so much! I could make one of these (I just built beautiful bookshelves in my den!) for a lot less $$ and would look more interesting

not loving the seam but am loving the yellow punch! dude i always wanted a secret room too! like a mini door behind something or other that lead to back ways in to other rooms.

Ok, I know....they should have hinged the entire front panel! Use a piano hinge nothing too big and obvious!!

interesting idea but yeah - too bad about the visible seams. i want a secret room off my bedroom! so cool...

I don't like the cut marks on the front, but the concept is cool. They just need a different design. The door should have opened from the side. It can be done! Also, the price is a little high if you ask me!

They should have made the door a little less obvious otherwise what's the point?

I'm not too fond of it. It would look much better if it were seamless.

After thinking about this, I think it could have had potential for me if they had just used a solid front piece that opened with hinges on the inside so you wouldn't see them.

You'd have to stand really far away from that to make it a secret. :p

yeah, actually a better way to spend two grand would be to pay my rent, car payments, phone bills, etc.
