    I did a quick make over on my sliding closet doors. I wanted barn doors , but I don't have the room for the normal hardware. I did research and found they make the hardware for my situation, they are called by pass barn door hardware , but it was $ 450 !!! Unfortunately , not in my budget 😕 i found a textured barn wood wallpaper on Amazon , it was about $24 , and it was more then enough...I also needed wallpaper glue and a squeegee..I never put up wallpaper before. Took me a little over an hour , and that was because I was being extra cautious , taking my time ...I covered the open circle area that you use to open and close the doors with , and put in rustic handles instead. They look great , everyone gets fooled , they think they are real !

    From what I've seen, You'll need to take the doors off, put up the rail and rollers. Attach the doors to the rollers and you have sliding doors. Google it.

      Yes. I know as far as the hardware. I was looking for a less expensive way to do the door covering. Thanks!
