Welcome to my bedroom…..

I never knew I’d invite so many people into our private space….but our projects get me so fired up….that I can’t NOT share them with you!

This week's project…..our new DIY sliding barn door! As in…..bye-bye-non-descript-always-annoying pocket door!

From the photo above …you can see the door frame. The pocket door simply slid out from that door frame and filled that space. This wall divides our master bath from our bedroom.

I’ve wanted a pretty sliding door system there for years….but you know….other projects!

So finally…….it all started with just those few boards you see below…..a little white paint….and an Amazon order!

The entire project was $150!

So do not let anyone tell you differently! The exact breakdown of what I spent can be found in my blog (link below).

The rolling system came with great instructions and was very easy to install. It makes NO noise at all when opening or closing which is really nice because our pocket door was STUPID loud!!!

I LOVE the handle!! It is huge…but the door is really big….so anything smaller would have looked out of place. It just feels good in your hand!

I love it sooo sooo much! I really wish we would have made the time to do this sooner! And because I know someone will ask…..we left the pocket door in the wall!
