From the Blogger: "DIY Barn Doors are all the craze these days and boy do I LOVE them!! I have ideas for barn doors all over my house!!! I started by making a 4′ x 1.5′ barn door for my family room wall with super high ceilings! The entire cost for the wood was only $6.40 and only took 30 minutes to make! Have the hardware store help cut your wood! This is a Beginner project, no experience needed!"
