How to make DIY barn door hardware

Decor, DIY, Furniture

I’ve always wanted to make my own DIY Barn door hardware, and I finally figured out how! It was actually a lot easier to make than I thought and I only used off the shelf items I got on Amazon (you’ll be surprised to see how I used stainless steel straws ) and at the hardware store, and I only used hand tools to build everything!

Here’s what I used to make the hardware:

Patio Door roller kit (for wheels)

Aluminum flat bar (¼” thick 8ft long)

Stainless steel straws (for spacers)

I also used a drill, a hammer and these other hand tools:


Mini Pipe cuter
