COLORFUL HAPPY HOME -- Daily DIY, Decor, Craft and Recipe Tutorial
Guest Post — Installing Barn Sliding Doors!
My husband and I design, build, and decorate custom homes in Portland, OR. Having “champagne taste” on a “boxed-wine budget”, I have learned over the years to DIY most everything in my home. Everything I’ve learned over the years in building and decorating has evolved into my blog.
I’d love to share my Barn Door Project with you as well as some ideas for installing barn door systems in your own homes!
Palisade Homes, West Linn Oregon
Bringing sliding barn doors inside the home is a fun way to add instant character and charm. The look of sliding doors can range from a salvaged cottage-look to a more clean and modern style.
The photos above are a salvaged barn door I installed. I found an online company, Crown Industrial, to make the black powder-coated track. http://www.crown-industrial.com/.
The door and handle were treasures I found at Aurora Mills salvation yard in Aurora, Oregon . http://www.auroramills.com/. This door took our carpenters hours to install having to work around some warp and varying widths of it. Ugh. So worth it though! My husband had the doors (pictured below) in a clients house using a box-style track system. These were brand new doors and the installation was much simpler.
Here’s some other fun hanging doors I LOVE!…
If you don’t have a doorway to install these looks, you can simply hang a pair of doors on a track onto a large wall. This really anchors a room and gives the illusion of another room behind it. Also at the Aurora Mills Salvation, I found some pieces of salvaged barn wood to make this custom 5′x5′ mirror with, below.
