I have been wanting to make a barn door out of old pallet wood for quite some time. The guest bathroom in my home is also the laundry room and I’m not fond of guests being forced to see our dirty clothes and cluttered shelves. As you might be able to tell, there is no room for a typical door, but a sliding barn door should work well.
I have done research on DIY barn doors and the various strategies for hardware, including steel bars, rods, pulleys, plumbing pieces, and re-purposed scooter wheels. I took all of the measurements and obtained some pallets last weekend.
The boards will be disassembled, sanded, stained, then reformed into a barn door. I am looking at the option of using old bed frame steel as the track.
The barn door is my first project idea. Once I get a bit further into the barn door project it may prove to be more involved than possible to complete on time. The second project I am working on is glass yard art using repurposed glass ashtrays, saucers and serving pieces to create decorative glass flowers for the yard.
