7 Ideas for Repurposed Doors

It’s no secret we’re passionate about barn doors here at Rustica HQ, but one thing you might not know is how much we love the stories behind repurposed doors. Maybe it’s the passion behind an object given second life in a new setting that appeals to us, or the history connecting the past, present and future, or the eco-friendly quality of it. Whatever the reason, we love it and hope this trend lasts!

We are excited to share with you a new recurring series where we share some of our favorite repurposed doors. Here are three of our current favorites we think you’ll adore.

1. The charming Cedar Hill Farmhouse found this ancient set of doors in disrepair and saw their potential. The French doors were lovingly restored and converted to sliding barn doors for a Country French themed home office with our Arrow Kingship Hardware.  found-doors-blog-12
2. Libraries have a bit of cherished reverence in the memories of childhood, and when Rachel Leavitt found this set of library doors at a rummage sale, she salvaged them. After some TLC, they hang in her home as a pair of elegant, bi-parting sliding doors. Image from @rachelleavittdesign on Instagram.  found-doors-blog-11
3. This is less of a found door and more a reclaimed wood door project, but it’s worth sharing all the same. @jonthorburn used reclaimed lumber from a neighboring barn to make a client’s door. The wood even had stenciling that matched the initials of the client’s name.  jonthorburn


Here are some finds that we’d love to see converted to sliding barn doors.

4. A beautiful, rustic window was converted to a door in this minimalist Scandinavian home. The modern and vintage made for such balanced, welcoming design.  Image via Hus&Hem hushem-found-doors-2
5. We’ve all see the black trimmed french doors and iron doors cropping up on design feeds and our Instagram accounts, so it’s no surprise one made it onto our list. Here is our favorite take on iron doors from Portellairon Doors. We’d love to see someone tackle the sliding barn door version of this! portellairondoors
6. Tall wooden french doors via The Snug. Incorporate traditional architecture into your home that’s making a trendy comeback with a classic French design. This antique pair is breathtaking. thesnug
7. Glass doors for this heavenly pantry via @designchic  It’s practically perfect in every way, with the rolling ladder and dreamy shelving. Pantries are still one of the best places to put barn doors because of their space saving nature. This one would be a stunner. designchic

Rustica Lock Measuring Guide

Measuring Distance

This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

Hole Placement

Introducing an easy solution to little ones slamming your barn door! Our new Closure soft-stop system slows you door down before it makes contact with the track stop. This ensures a smooth stop every time. The Closure system has been specially designed to be universal with all Rustica Hardware flat track systems, no matter the length of track this product will work with your flat track system. Product comes with (2) Closure mechanisms (one for each side of the track system) to protect your system whether it’s being opened or closed.

Hinge Placement Instruction

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.
