Your Barn Door is Open

Or closed. My crafty husband spent quite a bit of time working to hang a door that he found being pulled out of a rehab. The door is old and weathered, but the glass is still in tact, no cracks. He put the door on a rolling closet track and after a couple of tries, the door rolls smoothly and now closes off our sun room. I couldn't be happier.


  1. very cool. I like this look. Did you paint the door or are those the original colors? I am wondering what it would look like as a bright yellow.

  2. The door was this color when we found it, my husband asked about refinishing it, but I like the paint colors at this point. The windows need a razor blade taken to them, to remove sloppy paint, but I think yellow in a nice paint job would be great!

  3. Very cool. I love barn doors.
