Still going strong with the barn door aesthetic and given that our home is an antique farmhouse from 1740 I think it’s safe to include a little barn door here and there. These barn door window coverings are the perfect solution for my girls shared bedroom. Simple construction and installation using Simpson Strong-Tie hardware makes this project a cinch.
The solid wood hanging barn door provides complete blackout coverage for any window and then easily slides open to allow daylight to shine through. I combined garage door pulley wheels with Simpson Strong-Tie T strap ties on a flat steel bar to make the rolling hardware.
Protruding less than an inch from the moulding this low profile barn door window covering adds character and charm plus functionality.
