I wrote about these wonderful doors a while back here
They are numbered and have a great white washed finish....I think these may have been for changing rooms at a resort or something
The back of the doors are really great too
So how did I use them....
I used them as closet doors!
1 and 2 now reside in the master bedroom and 4 and 24 live in the guest room
When I asked my carpenter to help me with this project...I asked him if he had ever used barn door hardware before.
He gave me a really funny look and said
"yea, but on a barn"
I added some wonderful really old hand hammered door pulls
We trimmed out the little openings with new pine
and used chicken wire safety glass for the windows.
I used briwax for the finish
I purchased my hardware from a company called The Real Carriage Door Company
A couple of facts to remember about using these:
you will need space for your doors to open...more than the average door obviously
Second...the hardware is heavy and so you will need to add wood backing to support the hardware, which means opening up the wall above your opening. We also had to cut down the horizontal support bar to have the spacing equal on both sides
And finally...the doors hang away from the wall by about 2 inches. Take into consideration your moldings and other trim,
which may not allow the doors to open freely
all Mr Barney is missing is a little smile...
but when I see these
I do that for him
thanks for stopping by
don't forget to close your barn door...
