How to Make a DIY Sliding Barn Door Console Inspired By Ana White
This DIY sliding barn door console is one of my most recent projects. It's a beautiful console that I built for a customer, based loosely on the Grandy Barn Door Console by Ana White. Let me show you how I made it:
Having a little helper is the best!
1. Build the frames
The first thing I did was build two frames out of the 2x3s. Then, I added the side panels to the sides, using plywood, and glued and nailed down the face frame boards.
2. Add the bottom and middle shelves
I laid down the bottom shelf boards on the bottom frame. The next step was to add the middle shelf by placing it inside the console and then attaching it from the outside to secure it in place.
3. Add the hardware
My favorite aspect about this build is the mini hardware from Amazon. It really fits nicely on the piece and doesn't overpower the smaller doors.
4. Place the backing & add the top shelf
Then I placed the backing on the console using plywood. The last piece to finish off the console was the top shelf.
Then I painted the console a white matte.
6. Finished touches
Putting in the finishing touches.
