Were you born in a barn?

Another great way to add architecture to your home: sliding barn doors. Functional and so cool looking. Take it up a notch and use a recycled barn door. With all the new houses being built so wide open, I think this is a perfect way to make your space a little cozier while adding a bit of interest with the hardware track and a distressed or painted door.
I'm proud to say this beautiful home is from my neck of the woods.
I love how seamlessly the barn doors flow here.
The door almost looks like a piece of furniture,
and the track system blends in with the wood ceiling beams.

Sliding Barn Door Nursery
This is my good friend, Jackie's nursery. 
She installed  a barn door to separate her bedroom from her little boy's room.  
She built this herself for less than $300. So charming.

  1. I like the barn doors in theory. Perhaps not in my house though. Too "barny". Although they can look industrial and cool in a loft.

    I do love what Jackie did. She's so creative!

    That last pic has me inspired for my color redo. gray and yellow!

  2. Love barn doors! Especially those rustic exterior ones.


c'mon, don't be shy...
