DIY Pallet Barn Door Hutch | PART 2

Today I have a fun project to share with you all: a DIY Pallet Barn Door Hutch we have been building.

See Part 1 (How to build the hutch) HERE.

So I have been wanting a barn door for ages. But I have nowhere to put one in my small house. When I convinced my wonderful husband to build me a hutch, and we decided to try out a barn door on it.

When I was researching how to build a barn door, most of the tutorials I found required expensive barn door hardware, or had complicated DIY’s on bending & drilling through metal. I got a big headache, because I also wanted to make it into a DIY bypassing barn door.

Then I had a light bulb moment: Use a Closet Door Track! Heck yes! Lowes had one the width I needed for under $20. It is seriously super easy, y’all.

So here is my how to:

Step 1. Have your super cute, obedient husband cut boards into equal lengths.

Step 2. Line them up in the order you want them.

Step 3. Flip the boards over so the fronts are facing away from you & screw two 1×4″ boards to their backs. Make sure the support boards, and pallet board edges are level.

Step 4. Check on your kids through the sliding glass door.

Step 5. Flip the finished door over, right side up.

Step 6. Have your super hot husband pose with a tool…

Step 7. Cut off any excess off the two 1×4″ boards.

Step 11. Add a 1×2″ board to the bottom of the book shelf to keep the door from wiggling & sliding around.

Step 12. Ta-Da!

The door part of this hutch took us literally 1 hour. Using the closet door track not only simplifies the process, but also makes it dirt cheap!

I originally planned to paint the door white, but I ended up loving the rustic look of the raw wood. So there you have it! I am so excited about this post. It really makes the barn door concept accessible for anyone! Enjoy!
