Scrap Wood Barn Door

Submitted by milleall on Mon, 10/12/2015 - 07:31

I am finally getting around to the final touches on the home we built.  I have a small pocket office that needed a sliding barn door.  I build this door out of 3/4 inch plywood framed with 1x2 oak boards.  I added planks of scrap plywood, 1x boards, and pallet wood.   I added some different colors to make for a fun industrial/modern look.  I made the barn door track out of steel purchased at a local metal shop and wooden wheels purchased online.  

Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Maple plywood, Oak x2's, and scrap at 3/4 inch thickness
Finish Used
Different colors of diy chalk paint (flat paint with water and plaster of paris), various stain colors, and triple thick satin poly.
