DIY Barn Door Pantry

My husband recently built me barn doors to replace our pantry doors in the kitchen.  It has been a fun way to add some character to our builder-grade home.

DIY Barn Doors

We ordered the double barn door hardware on Amazon and then headed to our local Lowes for the lumber.  We bought pre-cut doors and then added the trim and cross piece of wood.

The nice people of Lowes actually cut the trim to size.  However, they wouldn’t do the angled piece so Court measured and cut that himself at home:
