DIY: Modern barn door for $40

Categories: DIY + How To

How we missed this when it first appeared on Apartment Therapy back in February is a mystery, but what’s not a mystery is why anyone would want this in their home: modern sliding/barn doors are an awesome alternative to regular doors-in-a-frame or even just casement openings; they add an instant level of architectural interest and are cool and functional, to boot! This Apartment Therapy contributor claims to have figured out how to make it for $40.

At that price, you’ll be able to make a few for your home, and because this is a custom door for your place, you really are in control of its size, color, heck even shape (maybe not shape). There are plenty of instructions, photos and a materials list, but be sure also to check out the comments; a few AT readers shared their tips and ideas so you get not just one DIY project in this tutorial, you get a few! Make your own here.

What do you think about this sliding door project? Do you think it looks cool…like something made for $40 or something more expensive? Would you ever try something like this in your home? Comment and let us know, for gosh sakes!

  1. we did it about 5yrs ago, for a loft in our home. it worked perfectly for a half wall in our loft bedroom. we used beadboard panels over frame for more of a farmhouse look. i would definitely do again.
