Originally we had considered purchasing a pair of barn doors for our living room however after finding out they cost around $400 each we decided to make some. What we didn't account for is the cost of wood. I was expecting it to cost around $130 instead it ended up costing us around $200. This is because we chose to go with prime pine instead of the cheaper prime. If we were to paint the doors we would definitely go with the cheaper pine. So that's something to keep in mind if you plan on making your own barn doors.
If you're thinking these are hard to make believe me when I tell you we were pleasantly surprised to find out that it was an easy project. This could easily be made over the weekend.
We first cut out all 4 pieces for both doors. ( photo above)
