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
