Building A Wood Chevron Barn Door for a Boys’ Bathroom Renovation

Hello Remodelaholics!  My name is Emily and I live here.

fixer upper with chevron barn door woodworking plans, wood herringbone barn door

We moved into this 90 something year old Kansas City house less than a year ago with three boys (including an infant, a 4 year old and a 5 year old), a seventy pound dog and an crazy belief that we could rehab most all of it on our own.  What it lacked in modern necessities (it had no duct work, gutters, insulation, etc.) it made up for in charm and space.

When we walked in for the inspection there was water pouring through the entryway, remnants of termites in the dining room and asbestos in the popcorn ceiling.  To say this was a fixer upper was an understatement but we loved the large corner lot, the layout and the neighborhood.

This is Georgia.

Build and amazing chevron barn door with this great tutorial and woodworking plans.

She lived here before me, with her two adult bachelor sons.  From what I can tell through photographs and letters the family left behind, Georgia and her boys seem like lovely people who adored this old house and made many great memories in it.  Though we now own the house, there is still plenty of Georgia to be found everywhere (including this portrait which my husband keeps hanging on our second floor landing for some reason).

Georgia and I share a love for this old beautiful home.  However we part ways when comes to the best way to show off its historic beauty.  Georgia preferred to cover it up with layers of wallpaper, paint, carpet and velvet (yes we removed a truckload of dusty velvet drapes).  Now, I am going room by room in an effort to restore the original wonders of our forever home while weaving in a few modern gems.  Somewhere between making school lunches, naptimes and chasing around my one year old, I am trying to find the time to turn Georgia’s home into one that I can call my own.

I am sure that Georgia would not approve.

We have no plans to ever move so I take total comfort in making this home just as we want it.  My husband and I were forced to build sets while in college to fulfill our Theater scholarships.  Little did I know how fruitful those shop lessons would be for us!  We have never rehabbed a house before, but we dove it head first and haven’t looked back.  Our most recent project involved turning an outdated bedroom and attached bath into a space for my two oldest boys.  Here is the space before (Yes, that is pink floral wallpaper.  And yes, it is also on the ceiling.  I told you Georgia was everywhere):

And here is the bathroom which we took down to the studs, leaving only the ceiling and the original hexagon mosaic tile floor.

This room needed many things, including a new bathroom door.  I love to find cool things from blogs, like this one, or Pinterest, and recreate them.  As they say, there is nothing new under the sun and I am not above stealing any idea that is a good idea.  I found an awesome version of a barn door on The Accent Piece and knew I wanted to make it, or one like.  Here is the door I ultimately came up with (which Amy created woodworking plans for here):

DIY chevron wood herringbone barn door for a bathroom

Why choose a barn door?

I decided on a barn door because in raising three boys under the age of seven the appearance of my house often looks more like a barnyard than a place where civilized people live.

There were also practical reasons that made the barn door a good fit.  The original door swung inward and to the right which is probably why the light switch was on the opposite side of the room above the sink instead of to the right of the door where you would normally find the light switch.  I had visions of my boys stumbling across cold tile in the middle of the night blindly trying to find the switch above the sink.  We solved this problem by moving the light switch to the right of the door but we had to do away with the inward swinging door.  The barn door solved the logistical problem.

Some people suggest barn doors are not good for bathrooms for privacy reasons but considering this is within a bedroom I thought it would be okay.  Besides, how much privacy do 4 and 6 year old boys really need anyway?  They rarely close the door when they are doing their business as it is.

Choosing Wood for the Chevron Barn Door

I had recently been to my local Habitat for Humanity Restore and knew they had a large stock of assorted hardwood flooring for a $1 a foot.  Not really knowing how much wood I needed (I probably went back 3 times for more) I picked through pieces I thought were a good mix.  I started by measuring the outside of the door frame to the bathroom.  In my case, it was 39” wide and 83” tall. (The printable woodworking plans are built to these same measurements, but you can adjust the size if needed.)

I went to Home Depot and had them cut a sheet of ½’ plywood and a sheet of luan down to 38” wide, one inch short of the door frame width to allow for framing the outside with trim.  The luan is the back of my door and the plywood makes up the middle of the structure.

Once you have the materials, the door can be constructed in a few basic steps. I’ll show the photos here, and you can get a full cut list and assembly diagrams here in the woodworking plan.

Time & Cost

The construction of the chevron barn door took approximately 3 – 2 hour sessions.  Hanging the door is definitely a group effort but I managed the construction myself.

Cost breakdown:

  • Hardwood floor- $30
  • Trowel handle- gifted
  • 4, 1×2- 8FT strips- $5
  • 4×8 sheet Luan- $13
  • 4×8 sheet plywood- $23
  • Door hardware – $98
  • Leather handle- $3
  • Tacks for handle- $3

How to Build a DIY Chevron Barn Door

Step 1: Create the Door Base

Glue the luan and plywood together with wood glue.  The luan side should be on the floor.  Set heavy items on top all around to compress the luan to the plywood and let it dry.  I used only wood glue for this step.  I knew this would not be enough strength for the finished product but will go back with short nails to secure.

Step 2: Choose Wood for Herringbone Barn Door Pattern

Start arranging the hardwood floor to find the pattern you like most.  I think it’s helpful to draw out a diagram before you start so you know what it will look like. I used 5 horizontal slats at the top of the door before beginning the split herringbone barn door pattern – or call it chevron, whatever you like.

The printable woodworking plans have a full diagram and cut list, including board widths, to make the layout easy. 

I started laying out and building the face of the door from the outside in.   I didn’t have pieces long enough to run the length of the door on the edges, so I put the seam on the left where I planned for the handle to go.

Step 3: Attach The Wood Face

Start securing the wood flooring edges with wood glue and 1 1/4” nails. Begin with the top and side frames, then the top horizontal pieces. You can add the bottom face frame piece now like Emily did, or wait to install it after the herringbone barn door detail (like suggested in the woodworking plans).

I used a pneumatic nail gun, which makes this process very fast.  Plus, there is nothing like using a nail gun to vent the frustrations of the day.diy chevron barn door, reclaimed wood herringbone barn door detail

 

Step 4: Cut The Door Stile

Cut a 1×2 to run down the middle.  Wait to secure this piece until all of the diagonals are cut to fit.  This gives you wiggle room to squeeze in the last piece of the herringbone barn door pattern.

Step 5: Cut and Install Herringbone Barn Door Pattern

To start the herringbone diagonals, I started at the corner with a triangle I cut from a wider piece of flooring.  From there it was a matter of marking the length of each cut until I got to the end.  These are all 45 degree angles and a triangle is very helpful. The woodworking plan contains a detailed diagram of lengths and sizes to make this part even easier!

An advantage of working with hardwood flooring is that each piece is manufactured with a tongue and groove edge in order for the pieces to fit into one another.  All you have to do is set it in and gently hammer the pieces together.  Then secure each piece with the pneumatic gun.build a wood barn door with chevron pattern, diy herringbone barn door detail

 

Step 6: Add Barn Door Frame

After the front of the door is finished its time to frame the sides.  The thickness of the door equaled 1 ½” (1/4” luan + ½”plywood + 3/4” hardwood floor).  This allowed me to use 1x2s strips of wood (which in reality measure at ¾” x 1 ½”) to frame the door.  I cut the 1x2s at a 45 degree angle and attached them to the outside edge with a pneumatic gun.

Step 7: Secure Barn Door Backing

The back of the door is just the sheet of luan.  Hammer short nails around the edge of the luan for added strength.

Step 8: Finish

If your precision with a saw is anything like mine, you may have gaps in the corners of the trim.  Fill any imperfect corners (in my case all) with wood filler.  When dried, sand until smooth.

I had intended to stain the door but after it all came together I really loved the natural look of the hardwood floor.  I gave it three coats of polyurethane using a foam brush.

Reclaimed Wood Barn Door Hardware

I bought the barn door hardware on Ebay.  There are a variety of options but I went with a basic style. (See more affordable barn door hardware here.)

This door is heavy but did not exceed the 200lbs weight limit of most barn door hardware.  Considering how wide our door is we went with the long 6.6 FT option opposed to the 6FT.  Given the thickness of our baseboards, we hung the hardware backwards so the door would be farther away from the wall.

The barn door handle is an old trowel my aunt found at an estate sale.  I took it from her figuring I would use it one day.  I found the perfect place within a month.

We needed a small handle to open the door from the inside of the bathroom.  I decide on a strip of leather that I attached with tacks.

While searching for leather at Hobby Lobby I can across these leather bookmarks.  The size is perfect.  I hammered it on with large nail heads leaving some slack so the handle would be easier to grab.

Finished Barn Door + Boys’ Bathroom Renovation

Here is the finished product, with a view into my boys’ new bathroom.  The tiling is also my work.  I credit my husband with the plumbing and electrical.

Benefits of the Barn Door:

  • Space Saver – Sliding doors are most popular for their ability to save space in the home or office setting.  There is no longer a door arc, as a result, it uses less space.  Barn doors simply slide along a track rather than swinging open and closed.
  • Environmentally Friendly – We use real wood to construct our barn doors; hence, a durable, naturally renewable, and most of all an eco-friendly resource.
  • Style – In addition to the ability to incorporate barn doors well with most architectural styles, they are also pleasing to the eye and extremely functional.
