DIY Barn Doors for Every Style
If you don't live in a classic farmhouse but love the look of barn doors, these five DIY barn door projects are just the thing to help you achieve the look. From a traditional barn door style to a modern fabric option, we've got a barn door project tutorial to fit any style and budget.
Rustic Upcycled Barn Door
If you're looking to create a truly rustic vibe, consider these upcyled pallet doors, which are the ultimate DIY project. The door, handles, and track are all built from scratch! The blogger dismantled some old pallets and enhanced their imperfections by staining them a rich, dark color. She also created the door handles from galvanized pipe and the sliders from her kids' scooter wheels! Read the tutorial at East Coast Creative from Shannon at AKA Design.
Modern Fabric Sliding Door
Love the look of a sliding door, but not a fan of the heavy weight that comes with it? Build a lightweight fabric screen sliding door with help from DIY blogger Mandi of Vintage Revivals. This project allows you to customize your fabric to fit any style. We love Mandi's modern take on a Swiss cross, but the design options are endless! Head over to Vintage Revivals for the tutorial.
Hollow-Core Doors Makeover
Using paint, a Sharpie marker, pine planks, metal handles, and a few other household items, you too can easily turn your plain-Jane hollow-core closet doors into chic coastal barn doors. Work with what you already have in your home instead of trying to replace your doors. This will make any DIY project easier and cheaper! Go to East Coast Creative for the complete tutorial on this project.
Contemporary Four-Panel Barn Door
This contemporary paneled door project isn't just for one barn door, but three, and it will only cost you about $150! Leslie of Paper Daisy Design made her doors completely out of plywood and customized the size of each to fit both her entry door and two closets. The high-end style of these doors increases the custom designer feel of her master bedroom. Head to Paper Daisy Design for more info.
Gliding Track Barn Door
When her choice of barn door hardware cost more than the door itself, homeowner Brier didn't give up on her project. Instead, she created a genius plan to build her own gliding door track! This DIY track option works with any style door and is a great way to customize the barn door trend to fit your style while staying on a budget. For complete details, head to The Lettered Cottage.
