Sliding Door in Kitchen

So since we moved into this house, I have wanted to hang a sliding door specifically in the kitchen separating the mudroom and kitchen walkway.  And this summer, for my birthday present,  I finally urged one talented family member to help me.  Here is the sliding door that my father-in-law and I made together and hung.  It took a few hours to build and then several hours to install.  But we did it, and I am so happy and pleased with it.  My FIL said to me after the install,  “Listen, I am not for hire for any more of these!”  LOL, it WAS a bit stressful, but we managed through it.   Here are a few pics, first few shots are from my iPhone, sorry for the poor quality.  I followed the “How to Build A Barn Door”  tutorial from The Handmade Home.  You can find the tutorial on her blog site here: The Handmade Home    And I ordered my horseshoe track and hardware from Artisan Hardware.  img_0013-2 img_0014-2 img_0016-2 img_0018-2 img_0020-2 img_0021-2
