How do I convert old sliding closet doors into barn doors?

by Samantha

I am going to slowly start to upgrade the home I live in. It is a rental and I am allowed to do anything that brings value to the home. I am starting small. The home was built in late 60s early 70’s and we are hoping to be able to buy it. My 1st project is 2 closets. That are the dreaded sliding doors on a track that never stay on track. Would love to reuse door and turn into barn door BUT I do not have any wall on the right. Both doors must be able to move to left. I was thinking of putting doors together. Any ideas. I wish I could cut into wall to expose the 3 ft of closet that’s can’t get to. Helpicon
