This came out so awesome. Did you use the same dimensions given in the example? Also what size is your TV? I ask because I want to build this but I'm scared my TV would be too small but this actually looks really great!

I used the same dimensions as the plan.  That TV is a 42".  We have since upgraded to a 60" and it now looks more proportionally correct.

The hardware was a pain in the butt.  The metal bar was easy to cut actually.  I just put one of my old blades back on my mitre saw and it worked great.  Extracting the wheels from their casing was the most challenging.  I ended up putting the entire thing in a vise and drilling through it.  It is totally worth it though.  Everyone who comes over is obsessed with it.  Also, I did not attach the boards on top.  It's much easier to move if you take those boards and the doors off and carry it.  Good luck guys!

Hey, love how this turned out! Was wondering where you purchased the barn door hardware? Been stuck with trying to find some that won't break the bank!

Can you please help me as to exactly what hardware to get

 My husband and I can only find the hardware for the big barn doors. We are so lost and no one can help us!
