Modern Sliding Barn Door

We made a modern sliding barn door for our master bathroom. Due to the more classic features of the home (such as chair railing and molding everywhere) we felt a rustic door would not blend in well. Instead, we bought the lumber and created a modern clean style, and were able to customize and add a mirror on the back for the bathroom side. We did have to "thin out" our current molding so the door could smoothly slide.

  • Really awesome job! What was most challenging about this project?

  • Most challenging part... figuring out the measurements of exactly how high the rail should be, and then the header board, and then how far it would stick out so we would know exactly how much to shave off of the chair rail.  This project did make me decide if we re-do our closets I will purchase a paint sprayer instead of trying to paint sides with a brush and flip it to do the other side.
