We knew we needed some storage that would be easy to get to, aka not the basement. So we tore up the leopard carpet, put down some laminate and made a small little storage area.
I had decided we should cover the opening to this space, approximately 5 feet wide, with a barn door. We just have enough clearance to the left so it was a GO.
Now, we just needed to locate a 10′ barn door kit. We ended up with this one from Amazon. Only $100 and ships right away, yes!!
So, my awesome husband built the barn door. It is massive. 8 feet tall by 5 feet wide. We discussed a few designs including an X across the front. I like this one because I think it looks a little like a Z (you know, for Zionsville)!
We stained the pine door in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Curio. We thinned the paint to a wash (approximately 3:1) and finished with our custom mix of Antiquing and Furniture Waxes.
And here she is in action…
