Farmhouse Barn Door DIY
Hello everyone! Hope you all are doing well. Today I have another Look for Less project for you all and I am so excited about how it turned out. As you know, I host this challenge every month on my channel. I ask other YouTubers to join in on the fun as well.
You are welcome to see the video tutorial on my Youtube channel or you can scroll to the end as well and watch the tutorial.
This time around I found this beautiful farmhouse barn door piece over at Kirkland’s:
I thought this piece was just lovely, but at $75, it was well out of my price range. So I decided to recreate it myself!
The best part about it is that I had some of the items I needed to recreate this.
I had picked up a frame from Goodwill for $1.50 and I had 2 poplar pieces of wood from Home Depot. They are really cheap and I always have some around for DIY’s. By the way, that frame was originally from Hobby Lobby and it retailed for $19.99!
I needed to make the “X” so I measured and marked the poplar pieces.
To cut them I used my miter saw kit.
I cut one long piece and two smaller ones.
Next, I painted them along with the frame with my favorite white chalk paint.

I gave them two coats and let them dry. Once dry, I measured and drew lines on the frame in order to create faux boards that ran from top to bottom.
Afterwards, I placed the poplar boards down and glued them on using Dollar Tree’s wood glue. It actually works pretty well and I like that it’s not yellow.
I used some paint containers to hold the boards in place while they dried.
Then it was time for the hubby to help me out.
I had this jar in my craft stash and I picked up this hose clamp from Home Depot.
I wanted to use the hose clamp to hold the jar on the barn door, so he cut the excess off and with his strong man hands he molded it to fit.

After screwing it on, it was ready to go! I thought about painting the clamp black like the original but then thought it actually looked better silver so I left it.
Then, I added some roses from Dollar Tree and greenery from Wal Mart and it was ready to hang.. only I can’t hang anything on the walls just yet!
The best part is this only cost $5 to make!
I think it would be perfect to change out throughout the seasons and I plan on adding fairy lights for some ambiance as well.
