Bringing sliding barn doors inside the home is a fun way to add instant character and charm. The look of sliding doors can range from a salvaged cottage-look to a more clean and modern style.
The photos above are a salvaged barn door I installed. I found an online company, Crown Industrial, to make the black powder-coated track. http://www.crown-industrial.com/.
The door and handle were treasures I found at Aurora Mills salvation yard in Aurora, Oregon . http://www.auroramills.com/. This door took our carpenters hours to install having to work around some warp and varying widths of it. Ugh. So worth it though! My husband had the doors (pictured below) in a clients house using a box-style track system. These were brand new doors and the installation was much simpler. Our cabinet company we use, Imperial Cabinets, can also produce some great looking replica salvaged doors.
Here’s some other fun hanging doors I LOVE!…
If you don’t have a doorway to install these looks, you can simply hang a pair of doors on a track onto a large wall. This really anchors a room and gives the illusion of another room behind it. Also at the Aurora Mills Salvation, I found some pieces of salvaged barn wood to make this custom 5’x5′ mirror with, below.
Hope this gets your creative wheels turning!
