Diy sliding barn style door,pole barn siding menards,goat shed designs in india - Review


We bought a house with far more bedrooms than we needed, but it didn’t have an accessible office. I used premium grade pine (1×2) to create a frame around the entire door to hide unfinished edges, and then created a farm style design on top of the planks using a wider pine board. Last week in my guest room reveal I mentioned the closet doors and how they were one of my biggest DIY fails to date.
I was really excited about these and planned to write this great tutorial, because really…who wouldn’t want an awesome DIY double bypass sliding barn door system (say that five times fast)? We made the doors larger than the opening (like a foot bigger), but it wasn’t enough. Third, the wheels scratched up my floors the first time I slid them (they’re made out of paper though, so no real surprise). Anyway, we removed the barn doors and hardware and put the old doors (that I took off years ago) back up. I used a metal pipe and hung curtains on it with metal curtain rings and even THAT sound is super grading on my nerves. I’ve always seen barn door hardware for like $400+ (crazy!), but I found some on Amazon for $99 that has great reviews. Wow, I’ve never even seen sliding doors like that… is that particular to barn doors? I’ve just seen this idea floating around and liked it, plus it matched the pipe curtain rods I have in the room.
I’ve followed your blog for some time and always love the things you do and the way you write about it, but this one takes the cake! Oh no, I knew from the second I started this blog that there was no way I was going to pretend to be Martha. This is an awesome and fun blog, and she has some really great information about the door tracks and a free door track tutorial on the blog and a place to purchase the wheels that she has researched and recommended.
By Laura These simple-to-build DIY sliding barn doors are an easy way to bring character to your home.
I recently built two rather large barn doors for my friend Emily as a part of her Dining Room to Play Room Makeover last week. We wanted them to slide all the way open, while covering the doorway completely when they were closed. First we lined up all of our 1×12 boards and screwed them together using my Kreg Jig and wood glue. Then we cut down the 1×4 boards for the frame using my miter saw and attached them with my nail gun. In order to cut the diagonal piece, I laid it down on the door and used a straight edge to draw a line where I wanted to cut it. Once I had my line drawn where I needed to cut, I placed the board on my miter saw and tried different degrees before I found the right one. Even though I’m not an angle expert, the diagonal cuts were perfect and the boards fit like a glove.
Emily painted the doors the same color as the gray in the playroom: Baby Elephant from Clark+Kensington. For the sliding system, we were inspired by this Sliding Door tutorial from Vintage Revivals. Before we moved the doors inside, we screwed in the eye hooks to the tops of the doors, and the casters to the bottom.

Thank you so much for this post, I knew tehre had to be a way of making easy, cheap sliding door hardware! Question: when sliding the doors, doesn’t the metal eye hook rub against the metal rod making a metal on metal sound?
September 23, 2013 by dailygnome 1 Comment Jason hung the barn door he made for the laundry room at the top of the stairs last weekend. Since we still have an old Maytag washer {still kicking and loud}, it’s nice to slide the heavy door shut to block out the noise {along with the piles of dirty laundry}.
We are want to say thanks if you like to share this post to another people via your facebook, pinterest, google plus or twitter account. I cut and added a few pieces of pallet wood to the pallet sliding barn door for the roller bars to fasten to. If you really like Pallet Projects you might want to check out our DIY – Pallet Wreath!!! Love your take on the barn door, and I would imagine it is not as heavy as using typical wood slats. We saw a sliding barn door at a furniture store this weekend, and my husband instantly fell in love with the idea of replacing a hard-to-close pocket door with one. Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments about our pallet door Melissa!
My husband is very traditional and automatically thought we would be putting double french doors in – I had a different vision. Nate and Michelle from DECOR and the DOG, came up with an easy and affordable way to add Board and Batten to their home. For the doors to overlap each other and the closet they have to be really wide…we probably should have added another foot to each door.
We made everything as compact and close to the wall as possible, but that still left the outer door almost six inches off the wall. The doors that I ended up putting back on use a track system, and it’s practically silent. So sorry you had a fail – but I love all your other projects in your house and your guest room. It took me 3 months and at least 3 tries to get each section right as it was my first major home improvement project.
I think posting fails is important…I often learn more from those than from a successful project. It is very interesting, and hopefully you can get an idea even if you don’t get her wheels.
And they were super simple. She looked around trying to find already made doors that would work in her space, but her doorway was almost 10 feet wide, so finding the right size and number of doors proved to be impossible.
Have the hardware store thread the cut pipe on both ends so that you can screw it into the 90° elbows. Although, I highly recommend having two people help if you’re building doors this big. I don’t do angles and all that mathematical jazz, so I just had to figure it out by looking at it.
I love having natural options and these essential oils have helped my family tremendously in our pursuit of natural wellness. It means that in helping you easily find some of my favorite products, I receive a small commission if you purchase.

I’m going to do this in my basement but I can’t seem to find a poor long enough! I’m trying to find an inexpensive way to build this to cover a little window plant box built into a strange place in the new house we are about to move into.

I wasn’t happy with the second finish and sanded down the whole thing and started all over.
In some rooms this might be okay, but considering the placement of our (on the same wall as the entry door) it looked…dumb.
So the other day Levi’s preschool teacher told me that in class they were doing circle time and each kid was supposed to take turns describing their mom.
I, too, had seen this method on all the blogs I read and literally am stripping down two old doors to do JUST this thing!!!! And so you might think that these are old and outdated, but really, in the right situation, a sliding barn door provides great flexibility while giving your home tons of character. I gave plenty of room for the door to slide all the way to the wall even though the pipe doesn’t extend to the wall. Pity i cant see from a closer look how it is notched to the door and if its smooth when it closes and opens. Take a seat and cruise on over to her blog for this makeover, and her well behaved kitties. I wish I had a video recording of the moment Adam and I got them all installed and stepped back to look at them, because it would be quite entertaining. Either that or they have magical DIY powers that Adam and I don’t possess, because ours was like nails a chalkboard times 1,000. Your ledge + cornice idea sounds like it would work, but for $99 it might be worth it just to buy the Amazon version.
Emily and her husband are planning to add handles to the doors, but again, there are tons of handle options that you can use to finish the doors.
I want to do a barn door type thing to slide to the side to open it and thought this idea is genius but I’m worried the wood would be too heavy to just hang from them. Super proud of him – took a bit of trial and error, determination and attention to detail but so happy with the result. I tried to source my gal pipe and flanges, so asked a builder friend where I might buy them, and explained what I was going to do…. Let me put some real tracking or barn door fittings up for you”, said Kevin the builder friend.
I was pretty put out, thinking he really had no idea, and that all those DIY bloggers would surely have mentioned it.
Truthfully, today I was going to tell him I was doing it this way, so I could do it myself.
