Faux painted Panel Barn Door!!

Yay!!! I jumped onto Barn Door bandwagon too!

DIY Blog world is full of barn door and colorful doors these days. I have been secretly admiring the barn doors and was patiently waiting for the day I get to put one in my home. We had the right spot for it too, the door way between master bed room and master bath room.

It sounds little weird, but there is (well was now ;) ) no door between our master bed room and master bath room. When we moved in, we were looking at installing pocket door or collapsible door. Pocket door was too much of work and hubby dear didnt like/approve collapsible door. So fast forward 7 years, we have a sliding barn door.

Sliding Door

I tried to incorporate my love for paneling in the barn door. This wall was pretty boring, sliding door with faux painted panel adds lots of interest.

I stained/painted the door almost a month back. My daughter was sick for a week followed by hubby falling sick for 3 weeks which kept delaying the installation. The door stayed in the bed room for a good month supported by the wall.

We finally managed to install it last Sunday.

One more shot with door pushed out. Sliding doors are the best option where the space is tight or you don't want to waste the space. Traditional doors swing open, which takes up lot of space.

will come back soon with the tutorial for the door and installation details.

Thank you for stopping by.
