How to Create a Sliding Barn Door
If there are some areas in your house that you think they need to be separated, you can create a quite original sliding barn door to divide the space in your house. A sliding barn door is very welcoming and it adds a touch of originality to your interior design. You will need to buy a special sliding box rail system but you can find this system at any hardware store. You`ll also have to invest some money in rail hangers, rails and stop mechanisms. You will need to check the area in which you plan on placing the slide door first. Make sure it is resistant enough for such a heavy barn door. You can build the door by taking the measurements first. Make sure it will fit in the wall. Then you can attach the hardware to your new barn door. The hangers can be used to mark the templates and you can then proceed to pre-drilling the holes. In order to fix the entire sliding system you need to use large bolts. You will then add the stops and the hangers and then you can bolt the rail to the wall you picked and insert the rail in the predrilled studs. The vintage look that your house will sport will be awesome. Make sure to paint the barn door if you feel like it or add some decorations on it such as cute wreaths or anything that comes in mind.
