Looking to change up the interior look of your home? We all know how great it would be if we could live in the barn with our horse. Sadly, that’s not always a possibility. Luckily for us, there is a new home decor trend sliding its way into homes across the country. That’s right – a sliding barn door is exactly what your home needs.

We tracked down a handful of DIY examples to guide you in  transforming your barn door into a masterpiece.

The first one is beginner friendly; at least according to Pinterest. Clean, easy and doable for under $50.

 

Now, if simple is not your flavor, we have a great DIY blog that makes it a two-day project and ups the budget to around $800. 

 

If you are worried about time (because wouldn’t it be nice to have more time to spend with your horse?), then this barn door DIY is the answer for you. It has a time allotment of just around a hour.

 

If building things out of wood isn’t in the cards, there is always the option of repurposing a current door to change up the room. All you need to do is screw the tracks to the wall.

  

Now that you have the barn door built, it’s time to add some character!
