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.
