Okay, the best place to find a hidden door to create a safe room or some place to conceal weaponry is a door made by Custom Service Hardware called the invsidoor. I think they are in Wisconsin. These guys have a door that is geared for this sort of thing. From their site they say the door ready to hang in an existing door opening 36x80, so says the video. The video they have on the site also mentions that it comes so it can be hung as an in-swing or out-swing. I have also seen their add in American Hunter. They also sell a pivot hinge if you want to build your own door. Anyway if you are looking for a door that can fit into an existing opening sounds like this would be the place to look. I don't have one but I have looked into a hidden bookcase door.
Build a wall of cabinets. In one of the cabinets build a slide-away back wall. it would conceal a door that opened in to the room.

I have friend who has a hidden entrance i say entrance because its like a half door in size leading to the open space under a long flight of stairs going to his basement at any rate in one of the panels used as decoration on the false wall is two slots housing heavy duty magnets which slide back in forth to hold the door shut before he started using a buffer between the magnets it left marks he tried to cover them up but there still visible and it pisses him off to no end as he thinks some one is going to find it not that it would matter as there is a welded rebar cage behind it.
i did the pegboard thing to hide a door. the door opens into a concealed 10 x 28 room. I covered it with pegboard, and put a clothes rack that hooks over the top of the door on it. On those I hand various and sundry ropes, hoses, belts, work apron, chore jacket, etc. Where they don't hang down I have pegs holding various hand toolsm neatly outlined with magic marker. Below I slid a small table/bench that I made to just fit in the slight recess, extending out for a work table. Then storage boxes below. Looks like a small work bench. I also added shelving along the wall near the door (the cheap plastic ones from wal mart work fine) holding the usual parts and miscellaney that accumulate near any work area. To access, slide the bench aside, reach under the clothes and open the latch. Works for me, and was not too expensive for my fixed income, but Im putting locking casters on the work bench, or some foot that glides easier and more quietly so it moves aside quicker. works for me.
Have him try the MR Clean magic eraser it might do it if not just have him paint. That is a great ideal might give a try on next one I build.

I just turned an old hallway closet in to a hidden room at my old house. I framed, sheetrocked and painted the old way in the hallway. then i went in to the walkin closet it backed up to and maid a small door way that i hid behind peg board. I actually had people break into my house and they had no clue it was even there
