Reclaiming rustic old wood as a hanging barn door can be great for creating a new focal point in your home. With the help of a DIY hardware track kit, putting in a new functional sliding door can be both fairly intermediate as well as extremely cost effective.
For interior designers and homeowners alike, the architectural taste that sliding barn doors offer is original, innovative and it provides a personal statement that concedes with the rest of the house. Not to mention value!
It’s a great cost effective solution that also increases the value of the house fairly easily. The hanging door is not the only important element of complimenting your contemporary design. The hanging barn door hardware is also important. The typically metal hardware that accompanies the design along the top ledge helps put emphasis on the artistic piece.
Reclaiming rustic old wood as a hanging barn door can be a project on its own and should be tackled with care. Ensure that you measure the trim of your door, and you are precise with cutting the old wood and then of course properly finishing it. Once these steps are taken in conjunction with the DIY sliding door project, you will have a refreshing member of old wood put into a new functional statement with your home.
