Don’t bother wasting money on an expensive barn door track kit. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. $58 will create exactly what’s pictured below. Transforming two salvaged $10 doors, casters, plumbing pipes, and other hardware into a cost-effective masterpiece, is both rewarding and environmentally-friendly. Not to mention cheaper than a traditional kit. Don’t want boring? Try this DIY project to bring character and warm wood into your home.
Salvaging and reusing materials is an excellent way to save money and provide unique accent pieces to your home. It also has other great advantages. For one, you can pick the style and color of the doors. You can also decide what way you want to hang the doors and whether or not you want to include wheels on the bottom for easier closing. The doors pictured below do include wheels and are attached to a simple metal plumbing pipe. These doors are also in a warm wood which not only enhances the white-painted walls but provides a stunning piece when walking in or out of a room. The matching between the guitar, carpet, and table also enhances the doors. Leave the doors open to create a clean flow throughout the house or close the doors to create a romantic space with these repurposed, light wood barn doors.
This DIY project is not only for those creating a country-feel in their house. The barn-door trend can be found anywhere from New York City loft spaces to contemporary San Francisco homes. It’s easy to install, create, and enjoy these $58, inexpensive yet fresh barn-doors.
