If you’re in love with Fixer Upper and all of the lovely farmhouse-inspired barndoors, you’ll love this list of ten amazing barndoor ideas for your own home!
I’ve put together a complete eye candy post of some of the best DIY barndoor idea that I could find for you!
Each of these amazing bloggers has built a unique sliding door and wrote a great tutorial for you to follow. Enjoy!
1. Black Bypass Barndoors
Of course I will start with my own barndoors! My black bypass barndoors separate my office from the foyer and provide some workspace privacy that I need with 3 wild children running around while momma is working from home.
For months we were trying to determine how to cover the door opening so that I could easily record my podcast and record coaching classes, but there wasn’t room for a huge barndoor. Then we learned about BYPASS doors (they stack on top of each other when they are slid open) and this was the ticket! Genius!
Also, I am just obsessed with black everything right now and even painted my dining room ceiling black, which you can see here.
2. Hallway/Laundry Room Sliding Barndoor
Emily at Our House Now a Home solved a problem of an annoying swinging door into her small laundry room by building a sliding barndoor.
3. Crawl Space Barndoors
Mary at The Cofrane Home covered up her under the stairs crawl space hole with a cute sliding barndoor . How adorable is that????
4. Bleached Wood Barndoors
Sara from Twelve on Main wanted a custom barndoor with a unique bleached wood finish. She also has a great tutorial on how to build barndoors here too. And can we talk about her beautiful chalkboard wall????
5. Decorative Barndoor
Colleen from My Life on Kaydeross Creek built a mini barndoor to use as spring decor on her fireplace mantle.
6. Round Barndoor for the Pantry
Lynn from LynnFern.com turned this salvaged round door to a bold red sliding door to her pantry. So fun!
7. Dutch Barndoor / Baby Gate
Cassity from Remodelaholic designed a Dutch Barndoor to double as a baby gate at the bottom of stairs.
8. Sliding Double Barndoors
Shara from Wood Shop Diaries made double barndoors to the entrance of her laundry room right off a main hallway. I love her frosted glass!
9. Sliding Repurposed Door with Glass
Gail from My Repurposed Life made a sliding barndoor to her bathroom from a repurposed door with glass. The words = so stinkin’ cute!
