DIY Barn Door – Part One

Standard

I bought this Barn Door Hardware probably 3 years ago.  I’ve finally learned that projects don’t get done as fast as you think when you’re doing them yourself.  Since my wall is already existing I needed to add a “header” for it to hang from.  So I used a 1″x4″x8′ pre-primed pine board and marked it to the length I wanted.  The door rail is 6′ long.

I painted it and then screwed it into the studs in the wall.  That door is the old door to my closet – it will be coming off.

Then I pre-drilled the holes for the rail spacers that hold the bolts for the railing.  My neighbor came over to help me hold it while I screwed the anchors in.

The hardware kit comes with everything you need, except the door and your door handle.  Barn Door – Part 2 tomorrow.

This is the kit I bought from Home Depot: https://tinyurl.com/y2ku2wvs
