1. Wide Sliding Barn Door

This barn door is sleek and simple, without having to fuss too much with a lot of hardware.

Sarah from Pretty Providence made this door completely from scratch, with cedar wood planks and an internal barn door track.

It is a beautiful, simple sliding door that separates her dining room from her living room.

2. Barn Door Window Treatments

If you don’t have the space in your house for a barn door divider, you can still get the look with interior window treatments.

Brook from All Things Thrifty used real barn wood and created the traditional Z shape and antique style hardware to make her window treatments look as authentic as possible.

3. Barn Door Cabinets

Katie and Eric from Mountain Modern Life had found a set of cabinets that were being thrown out by an apartment complex and decided to turn them into something fantastic.

With some 1×3 planks, they created a barn wood style rustic top, and barn wood doors with the traditional Z shape.

The hardware is secondhand carriage house hinges that she spray painted black.

After a few reinventions of the perfect stain, the cabinets were complete.

4. Barn Door Headboard

Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic wanted to create a rustic headboard for her son’s bedroom, and she found plans online for a barn door style headboard that she adored.

With a little tweaking and some perfect staining she made a fantastic barn door headboard with just the right rustic edge.

5. Barn Door Style French Doors

Interior barn doors don’t always have to look like barn doors!

Karah from The Space Between picked up some gorgeous french doors from a dumpster, added a fresh coat of paint and a sliding track and turned them into modern barn doors.

The key here is the visible barn door style sliding hardware, otherwise these doors would just be pretty french doors.


6. Modern Sliding Barn Door

Not all traditional style barn doors need to be rustic, as Kara from Life with Finger Prints proves with her bright green barn door!

She and her father built a large 6×7 door out of plywood and MDF board with a traditional X barn door design but she didn’t want to go with a traditional stain.

Instead, she opted to paint it a bright, modern green, tying in with the rest of the decor in her house.

7. Barn Door Baby Gate

Justin from Remodelaholic wanted to keep their girls off of the staircase, but without the unsightly plastic baby gates.

Using pine boards, he created a sturdy and beautiful baby gate with a traditional barn door X and a rustic grey stain.

His plans are incredibly detailed so you can easily build this gat for yourself!

8. Barn Door Console

This console is the perfect mix of modern and rustic, with sleek white cabinets and lightly stained pine doors.

Jaime from That’s My Letter has detailed plans on her website for building these beautiful cabinets. You can buy the sliding barn door hardware here.


9. Laundry Room Sliding Doors

Shara from Woodshop Diaries wanted to hide her messy laundry room and get rid of the traditional door that took up so much extra space in the room.

To fix the space, she created a mashup of french doors and barn doors.

They have narrow glass panes that she painted with a “frost” spray paint and a natural wood stain.

10. Sliding Pantry Door

Barn doors don’t always have to be used as room dividers, they could simply be used as accent pieces or to hide an unsightly cabinet or pantry!

Jen from Epbot created a simple plank door and distressed it with a hammer for visual interest.

With a dark stain and sliding door hardware, she created a pretty door to conceal her laundry room cabinet.


Bonus: Entertainment center when opened and beautiful bookshelf when closed!
