Rustic Barn Door

Country-chic is a popular trend in home design these days, and is a simple and elegant look that you can achieve with fairly minimal effort. Adding a barn-style door to already existing furniture is one such way to bring this classic style into your home.


  • Wood boards

  • Pencil

  • Saw

  • 1½-inch wood screws

  • Drill

  • Wood glue

  • Sandpaper

  • Varathane weathered gray wood stain

  • Bracket

  • Flexible hanger

  • Drill and ¼-inch bit


  1. Lay boards of equal length side-by-side, as many as you want to make up the width of your door. Cut two other pieces of wood to be the same width. Add one board to the top of the door, and the other to the bottom. Make sure that your door hardware will line up correctly with where you are placing the wood pieces.

  2. Lay one piece of wood across the door diagonally, and use the pencil to mark where to cut the piece to fit in between the top and bottom pieces.

  3. Sand any rough edges of the wood with sandpaper, and stain. Allow to dry.

  4. Use wood glue to adhere the top pieces to the boards. Clamp together for at least 30 minutes, and secure the boards with screws on the backside of the door so they remain unseen.

  5. Attach the sliding door hardware to a shelf, doorway, or any other space, and then attach the hardware to the door according to the enclosed instructions
