Cathedral Mirror Barn Door Joanna Gaines Inspired

4 Materials

Medium

I have a very small hall bath & the door opens into the bathroom, taking up even more space, so I wanted to replace it with a sliding door. I bought an arched mirror on clearance and mounted it to MDF, framed it out and added trim and molding on sides for privacy.

I purchased the MDF from Home Depot and they cut all the pieces to size for me. I bought the barn door hardware on Amazon. I am pretty handy,

Here's the mirror from Kirklands.

I mounted it on MDF 9” wider and 11” higher than the mirror. I painted the top of the MDF board prior to assembly for easier painting after.

I had the MDF cut to size to frame out the mirror.

To cover where the hinges and door latches enter the door jamb, I just covered each side with toe kick and caulked around the edges.

    What does the back of the door look like

      plain White Door. Because I preferred to keep the trim I have not found a barn door latch that works. So for me when the door is closed it’s in use. Didn’t want the look of hook and eye closure. That may not work for you. Could have used recessed hardware to open and close but I used just the back plate of a cabinet knob. Used just one washer behind the backplate so it was raised just enough that you can push it open or closed. I liked the scrolled design of the back plate.

    What did you add for a grip on the bathroom side of the door to slide it open? If a handle was added it would block the door from sliding all the way to the left. Thank you.

    I love this. Want to make it for my daughters room. Where did you get the cathedral door facade.
