Create high style rustic sliding barn doors with low-cost lumber—and a few tricks. In these sliding barn door plans we’ll show you how to build a simple interior barn door, including how to distress new pine boards for a weathered look.
These barn door plans include three sliding options. Before starting, take a careful look at the area where you would like to install the door and figure out what door setup works best. If you want to cover the opening with one door, you’ll need an area on one side of the opening that’s wide enough for the door. Make sure there aren’t any obstructions like light switches, sconce lights or heat registers that would be covered by or interfere with the door. If there’s not enough wall space on one side of the opening, you can install a pair of barn doors that slide to opposite sides, or use special bypass hardware that allows the doors to stack.
