Julie of DO or DIY needed a creative solution for her laundry room after installing new appliances that blocked the door from opening all the way. Julie and her husband realized a barn door was the perfect solution and would make quite the statement in their boring hallway. The only problem was the price. Instead of dishing out hundreds for a laundry room door, Julie and the hubs decided to build their own barn door using antique wood from an architectural salvage shop and simple materials found at any big box hardware store. Julie says, “At the end of the day, it ended up being just under $65 and looks identical to many of the other options we found that ranged from $300 all the way up to nearly $1000!”
The inspiration came from the Z Combination Barn Door from Rustica Hardware.
