DIY Sliding Barn Door (+ Master Bedroom Refresh!). A farmhouse-style sliding barn door with herringbone details added function and charm to our bedroom.
DIY Sliding Barn Door (+ Master Bedroom Refresh!)
Have you ever had two doors in your house that opened into each other, and the handles always got stuck together (often smashing your fingers)?!
That was how our bathroom and linen closet doors were up until a few days ago. We talked about a pocket door but decided that project would be beyond our DIY skills.
Instead, we purchased and installed this sliding herringbone barn door kit. It totally solves the problem, and it looks adorable too!
Master Bedroom Refresh
Before I get to the Barn Door details, I’ll show you our master bedroom refresh. We got a new couch in our living room (blog post coming soon), so we moved one of our settees into our master. I also got a gorgeous new rug, new bedspread, and we added Horiztonal Board and Batten to the wall behind our bed.
For all the details on how we do our Horiztonal Board and Batten Wood Accent Walls, head to this blog post.
We DIY’d our headboard out of a vintage door about five years ago. I did a blog post on it at the time, but it needs an update. I’ll add it to the blog soon!

Isn’t this rug beautiful?! I saw it in a Facebook ad and knew it was THE rug for this space. It is so plush too!
DIY Sliding Barn Door
Ok, we’re finally getting to the barn door. I fell in love with the Herringbone details on this door. It’s hard to see them in a photo, but in person, they really pop. 🙌🏻 I darkened this photo so you can see them better.
Using a full sliding barn door kit (we used this one) makes this project easy to do in about two hours.
If you plan to do this DIY Sliding Barn Door, be sure to watch my Instagram story videos on this project, because I share some handy tips we learned along the way and answered a few questions about the project.
The door guide I circled in the photo above, which came with the hardware kit, ensures the door doesn’t flap around when you’re opening and closing it.
We added a simple hook and loop lock for privacy.
It’s so nice that the two doors don’t open into each other and get stuck together all the time now!
PVC Shiplap Accent Wall
Not long ago, we also added a DIY PVC Shiplap accent wall in the master bath. It was a super easy project and the PVC material is perfect for bathroom humidity. And it totally covered up my wall stencil fail. 😂
