One thing I wanted for Christmas was a barn door for my closet.
I have a small closet and the door swings inside
making the area behind the door kind of useless.
Well, I got my barn door.
And here it is.
It was made from a recycled door that I had stored
in the basement for about 20 years.
This door used to be upstairs leading down to the basement
and I had replaced it with a french door.
And you know I don't throw anything away.
So my barn door was free.
This is where the barn door will go.
Here's a look at the opening after the molding
around the door has been removed.
To install we put up a 1X6 to attach the
barn door hardware to.
Here the hardware has been attached.
It's pretty straight forward.
We ordered the hardware from Lowes.
After I primed and painted the door
we attached the hardware to it.
Then we lifted the wheels on top of the rail.
For the hardware to open and close the door
I used something I had gotten a year ago from Hobby Lobby.
I think it looks really old.
Here's a copy of all the hardware involved.
After adding the molding on the sides I caulk and painted
and it was finished.
And heres another look at the finished door.
I love it!
My Spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
He has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.
