For those who own firearms, safe storage is a must. You would not want your 3-year-old to have their little hands on a book of matches, would you? You would not want a burglar to have the ability to steal your car keys.
Guns are the same way. Proper storage techniques can help to ensure the safety of your loved ones. Here is a nifty way to store your rifle or a larger gun without anyone thinking twice about it.
How to Make a Hidden Gun Storage
- AR15 Currently behind the picture. Mounted flush against the wall, only 2.5” thick.
What You’ll Need:
- A decent-sized picture frame
- 2 wall mounts
- 2 brackets
Step 1: Mount Brackets Into the Picture Frame
Mount two brackets into the picture frame using a 1-3/8” wide drill bit for a perfect circle to inlay the cabinet-style bracket. Only needs to be 3/4” deep.
This allows the picture to open upward without hitting the wall and yet being flush when closed
Note: We recommend drilling a hole 1/4” or just slightly more from the edge. Not just for strength purposes, but when closed the 1/4” board used as backing will fit perfectly inside so the picture is flush against the wall.
Step 2: Mount the Frame & Add L Hooks
Mount to wall using wall mounts. Hammer two L hooks (use your judgment) into the wall a decent length apart to support the weight of the rifle.
Step 3: Add Motion Detectors
Add motion detectors to the inside of the picture frame to set an alarm in case your hiding spot is disturbed! You can find these at some stores like Walmart.

Step 5: Place the Picture Frame
The final step is to make sure the picture frame is in place and will cover the weapon.
