False medicine cabinet wall

For impressing (deceiving) that special someone.

You know the scene (I think Seinfeld did an episode on it). Your new partner goes to you bathroom for a shower, hops out and opens your medicine cabinet. She is confronted by anti-dandruff shampoo, anti-depressants, denture adhesive, tinea ointment, a brush caked with hair, ear-wax remover, eye-drops, haemorroid cream, etc. The romance quickly disintergrates. But if the cabinet had a false wall, like the rotating false-walls from librarys in horror movies, you could spin it around when guests are due. The "fake" side would contain after-shave, romantic bath-oils, a brush with no hair stuck in it (never to be used), vitamins, etc.

       Heck, I'd like a version of this for my entire bathroom...

       [sings] but although the house is madly gay,
It wouldn't do for everyday,
We actually _live_ in 7A,
In the house - next - dooooor!

       I was thinking a refrigerator could be done along these same lines, but the never-to-be-eaten brie and escarole would rot.

       Yes! I could even do this for my kitchen cabinets!
Jscotty, Nov 03 2005
  

       or my rubbish art collection. or my size 10 (uk) knickers carelessly strewn on the floor...   

       come on - you know what I mean by strewn

       (+). I heard one story of a hostess (no, not that kind) who filled her medicine cabinet with marbles to catch out dinner guests who peeked during a visit.

       she lost her marbles? plink. plink. plink...
po, Nov 03 2005
  

       I'd love to play that trick on one of my friends, she is very snoopy. How do you get all the marbles in without them falling out as you add them?
Zuzu, Nov 03 2005
  

       I saw that marble trick on a hidden camera show. The reactions were priceless. Didn’t show how they loaded them though.
Shz, Nov 03 2005
  

       Rather simple really, just take a piece of paper, us it as a wall to keep the marbles in, put some tape on the outside. When you close the door, the paper will stick to the door, and let the marbles out.

       Damn, you mean someone has been cramming all my baking pans sideways in the cabinet just so they fall out every time I open it?

       From the title, I imagined a box full of placebos.

       Slightly off topic story:   

       Some friends of mine moved into a house formerly occupied by a group of bikers.   

       There was a little loop of string that stuck out of the wall next to the medicine cabinet.   

       One day my friend became curious why the loop was there, and tugged on it.   

       The back wall of the medicine cabinet opened out on hinges, and there was a note scrawled in pencil on the inner wall.   

       It read "So you finally thought of this, you bastard. I took the money AND the drugs too !"

       //We actually _live_ in 7A, In the house - next - dooooor!// Yay Flanders and Swann. Yay Moomintroll. Whatever happened to Moomintroll?
MaxwellBuchanan, Nov 14 2007
  

       Brilliant! A roll for you!
Monty6, Nov 15 2007
  

       Or you could just keep all your medicine cabinet stuff in that box under the bed where your other private things are.   

       Just don't mistake the icy hot for the vasoline...
ye_river_xiv, Nov 15 2007
  

       I like the marble idea.   

       My wife an I use a rubber cockroach attached to some fishing line to scare the daylights out of nosy medicine-cabinet snoopers.   

       It's usually worth a good laugh.

       for the fridge idea use plastic food [+]
xxobot, Nov 16 2007
  

       How about just having a camera mounted inside the cabinet that takes a picture with an obvious flash when the nosey person opens the door? Whose embarrassed now?
