Hanging a Barn Door for Our Master Bathroom

Introduction: Hanging a Barn Door for Our Master Bathroom

About: Around here you'll find we love to: refinish old furniture, re-purpose old pieces, build it from scratch and continue bettering our home one step at a time!

Being as this is an old farm I have the perk of having several old barn doors that I stashed in a safe place and have been drooling over for months. This one was my grandparents’ old wood shed door.

In the pictures you will see first that I brought the door and the hardware in before I went through all of the instructions. Then, I added the wheels to the top of the door, this was a simple as drilling out the correct sized holes and screwing in the anchors before attaching the top wheels with screws.

Step 1: Getting the Rod Mounted and the Door Hung

With the wheels on the top of the door attached I took my measurements then headed up stairs. I drew a level line on the wall and then added the mounts in, three of them to studs, the other two with sheet rock anchors. Then I set the rod in place and secured it using the mounts.

With that done it was a simple as setting the door in place!

    Nice job, however I am curious at what holds the bottom from scraping the white molding? Is there a follower wheel o the bottom of the door?

    Hi there! Thank you for the comment! The door is too short right now so its not hitting anything when we use it. We're trying to decide if we want to find a longer door to replace it with, make this one longer using old barn wood or just live with it as is. The hardware came with a floor mount that is designed to go in a groove that runs along the bottom of the door but I think I will be getting the "on the wall" hardware instead, to hold it out from the trim.
