Wall Safe...How to mount one
From our house destroyed in Hurricane Katrina, we salvaged the old wall safe. It is of a size like a really small countertop fridge. And it is really heavy.
We don't have anyy important jewelry or valuables for it, but I've hung on to this artifact for 5 years now, and DH is thinking about throwing it out.
What I want to do is build it into the new closet bumpout, so we can stash important documents like wills and deeds in it. Maybe insurance policies? Car titles?
Anyone have any ideas about other locations for a wall safe?
In the old house, it was built into the pantry shelf just off the kitchen, secured to the studs of the house by headless bolts with the nuts inside the unlocked safe.
