These DIY barn door projects will show you how to build and hang a barn door in many different areas in your home. They can separate living areas, used in place of bi-fold doors in bedrooms and kitchens, and even act as pet and baby gates.

Not only do barn doors look great, but they're also a great way to save space in a smaller room. Since they slide open instead of swing open, you don't have to save space for the door to open.

There are all different styles of DIY barn doors here, including the traditional rustic look, fresh and simple white doors, and even modern barn doors if you're looking for something a bit different.
