Sliding Barn Door

I have another finished project! I've been wanting to make a sliding barn door for the laundry room since we moved in last year. The swinging door that was there blocked a closet in the laundry room when opened. For convenience, I took the old door off, planning to put up a sliding one. Now - a year later - it's done!

Making this barn door was pretty simple. It took much longer to measure, decide on the style, and paint than it took me to actually build it. Since you can find instructions on building your own barn door all over Pinterest, I'm not going into detail on how I did it. Here's the door before painting.

And here is the finished/painted door.

I absolutely love it! I don't know why I waited so long to get this done.

The sliding door hardware I ordered online from Home Depot. It was much less expensive than anywhere else I checked, and it works just fine.

Now on to the 300 other projects on my list.
