I know you are wondering what the title barn doors refers to. We have a small, 1600 sq ft, 4 bdrm house. It was built in the late 1980's and really had no personality at all. No moldings, no storage, etc. So what is a girl to do? Why improvise and read decorating websites!
We did a whole house 'refresh' in 2008. The main rooms were the kids bath and the stairway. In the process I also got my office/sewing room redone! But there was always the issue of small rooms and doors! Do you realize how much space a door takes up when you open it? When we redid the small hall/kids bath that is what I ran into. What to do about the door! Well here is my solution, a barn door, or sliding door! Love it!
It is just a regular door that is meant to fit the opening plus a little more. We added the track on top and covered with molding. The kids love it and I love that my new jacuzzi tub doens't get banged by the door!
The hardware we got from Johnson Hardware, here is the link Door.
Everyone told me I couldn't put a door where there wasn't one! I pushed on and this is what we have now!
Now I feel like I have a master bath retreat when I close the door! Love it.
Now for the final one. Our office/sewing room is at the top of the stairs. Our stairway opens to the dining/living room so it is seen by all, plus it had double doors! What is a girl to do? Why find some awesome hardware and score some cool doors at Habitat's ReStore! I love my office doors.
Have a great week
