DIY Barn Doors

Awesome Remodels Yesterday
I've always thought barn doors were awesome and wanted to put them somewhere in our house, but didn't know where. It finally hit me that barn doors over the existing patio doors in the basement would serve two purposes; the first being for privacy and second for security. The barn doors fit over the existing blinds that we have installed on the patio doors, but I am thinking of taking them off because no sun ever hits the windows due to the deck covering the patio just outside. You can read more about how we made the barn doors here: http://www.diydesignfanatic.com/2013/01/diy-... #ProudestDIY #basementideas
Cost: $600 Difficulty: Challenging
Our barn doors add extra security over our basement patio doors.
Here's the barn door unfinished.
We finished the doors off with some interesting hardware.

    My daughter suggested years ago to paint my floor to ceiling doors in my laundryroom barn red with white x's like barn doors. It is awesome cause everything else is chickens and barn rustic.

    We did this on the outside of our patio doors because we live in the desert and can't afford to build a patio cover right now. We used fence sections from Home Depot, trimmed them to fit and bought the rolling hardware (from old barn doors) on Ebay. Had

    I would think a 3rd purpose would be added insulations against Heat/cooling loss to the elements....

    My sister in law closes off her furnace and laundry room with red barn doors. Hers is a farm house which has been added on to 3 or 4 times by previous owners. It helps conceal the clutter as well as the noise of doing laundry.
