20 DIY Ideas to Help You Build Your Perfect Barn Door

DIY barn doors not only add rustic style to homes, they also add a healthy dose of practicality too. Sliding barn doors are proving particularly popular in homes around the country as they take up next to no floor space whatsoever. Unlike conventional doors that need space for opening and closing, sliding interior barn doors are a great space-saver. They’re also extremely hygienic too, reducing the need for fabric curtains that are notorious carriers of allergens.
