DIY Barn Doors

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-barn-doors.html

    I love the whole room! Those barn doors really make the entire room ''Just feel like home". And I don't even have a barn... But love what you did!

    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.
