How to build a Dutch barn door

Want to keep your little kids (or pets) out of a certain part of your home? Then a Dutch barn door might just appeal to you!

DIY Dutch Barn Door

Dutch door, stable door, or half door – this type of door is a great solution for keeping your children or pets from going into certain areas of your house while still allowing for air and light to flow in both areas.

You can even use one as your external door if you want more light and breeze coming into your home while still being able to kids in or dogs out! The closed lower half will also help prevent outside dirt from getting into your house. ;)

A Dutch barn door is functional, easy to build and it adds character to a room!
