This is one of my first projects of 2012. I have dreamed about this project for over a year.
So here are our french doors into our basement “lounge” that we re-arranged recently. See those photos here. This room is where we watch sports or the kids watch movies with friends. The glass panes are covered with fingerprints and dog snorts. These white french doors did not go with my vision for our basement.
Here is our finished version:
The barn doors open into our cozy little den:
Pricing barn doors is tricky. The doors can be relatively inexpensive, but the hardware for the track and roller system is crazy expensive (relative to standard door hardware). Every track system I priced online was easily $500.00 and the additional hardware x2 doors pushed the price above $900- $1000.
This is only the beginning of this project. The brackets are attached to each door and then hung onto the track. So you need 4 brackets total for 2 doors.
I decided on the stain. I went with the
Dark Walnut and lots of cotton rags.
and the barn door hardware track system from Lowes
Approximate total cost for the 2 door project:
