#makeovermonday / we have BARN DOORS in our house!

Brian surprised me for today’s #makeovermonday post with sliding barn doors!

Last summer I toured million dollar homes at our local Homearama and one thing almost every house had was at least 1 set of sliding barn doors – see below. I was hooked! I sent Brian the photos and begged to make them work in our house.

The key is you have to have open wall space beside the doorway you want to use…and well, we really have no open wall space – hardly anywhere in our home! He was oh so quick to remind me of that key point πŸ™‚

One space we do have open walls is our office turned play room downstairs. Here it is as of earlier this afternoon.

My parents have the same floorplan and their room came with beautiful french doors installed. Ours did not.

2 reasons I would LOVE doors in this space:

1 – to hide the mess this room becomes all too often

2 – if we ever need to use this space for a guest room, it would be nice to have privacy.

and well 3 – the girls make a lot of noise with their stage!!

lets build a stage 1 the daily starr

The first step was to install a wood support piece onto the wall.

Then, Brian installed the slide railing on top of the wood pieces.

Brian installed them, took about 2 hours total.

Yay for barn doors! Now I just need a barn πŸ™‚
