Barn Doors for Laundry Room

It has been a while since I have posted anything so I thought I would share the barn doors I that cover a recently remodeled laundry room. I made them from hard maple then sprayed them with about a half dozen coats of Arm-R-Seal satin (although they are very glossy for a satin finish – first time I have ever had this issue with Arm-R-Seal).

The hardware came from a company in Erie, PA that makes everything themselves. Pricing was very reasonable and this particular configuration allowed me to do two doors. The wall on either side of the door was narrower than the width of the doorway, thus necessitating double doors.

Each door measures approximately 24” wide by 78” tall. Running boards that long through my jointer was challenging but, in the end, very rewarding.

Thank you for looking!

Very nice Chuck, did you use a rattle can or gun ?
Either way the finish looks great, as does the build

Beautiful doors Chuck! I’ve been thinking about trying something similar but I’ve been very surprised at how expensive this type of hardware is. Might I ask what the name of that company you used is? I’d like to check them out…thanks!

Dick, good to hear from you! I used my little Rockler HVLP. It will spray Arm-R-Seal straight from the can and does a great job. I appreciate your kind words!

Scott, the hardware came from All the parts came as raw steel and had to be painted. I just used a simple matte black spray paint and they came out great. I did have to cut one of the two tracks down to make it fit my space but that was relatively easy with a metal cut-off wheel on my angle grinder.

Ivan, thank you very much for your comment! Always appreciated!
