Real Barn Doors are meant to be used in a sliding function only, and in interior applications. For custom swing-out doors, custom sliding doors, or exterior doors, visit Real Carriage Doors. Sliding hardware not included. See our Real Sliding Hardware options.


You can paint the door using our milk paint (or choose Shop Applied Finish above to have us finish your door). Available in a range of colors, from traditional to ecclectic. VOC-free, this paint is mixed with water for a fast drying finish. For a clear finish, use our easy-to-apply Barn Beeswax.

Shop Applied Finish:

Our shop will apply several coats of the finish of your choice on all sides of the planks, and apply a beeswax top coat. Order finish samples here. When the kit arrives, you will need to assemble the pieces.  NOTE: Shop-applied finish may not match that shown in product photos exactly. Each door is unique so some slight variation may occur.

Shop Pre-Assemble:

Working on a deadline?  Our shop will assemble the door for you and ship it to you as a single unit. For a completed look, choose "Shop-Applied Finish" and a color.  

Please note that all barn doors will ship separately from sliding hardware when purchased together. If your project requires special consideration, please call 800-694-5977.

    The door is extremely solid. I had my contractor assemble and finish and I love it.

  3. best fight i've ever had 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2013

    I purchased this door as a kit. My 12 year old son and I beat it up with a chain and a pizza cutter to weather it before we finished it. I love this door. Assembly was pretty simple, once I bought a mallot. Now that it's built, this is a solid door. I was happy to find no warping and love the natural beauty of the wood.

    It took both paint and stain beautifully. (I stained the back side to show when I slide it closed)

Flat Track Hardware

Flat Track Sizes:

"How do I choose a track size?"
Simply double the size of your door(s) to determine the proper track length. Example: a 36" wide door will need a 6' track. Example: (2) 36" wide doors will require 12' of track.

Bottom Guide:

"What's this?"
The Bottom Guide keeps the door steady. The T-Guide is a floor mounted guide that requires a groove in the bottom of the door. The C-Guide is a floor mounted guide that cups the bottom of the door and is also available in an adjustable option. The Wall Mounted Stay Roller is a wall mounted guide that works with doors from 1-1/2" to 2-3/4" thick. This is an ideal guide for extra thick doors and exterior applications.

Door Thickness:

"Why do I need to specify a door thickness"
We ask for door thickness so we know what size of carriage bolt to include in the hardware kit. Carriage bolts attach the hanger to the door. If your door's thickness falls between sizes, simply round up to the next available size.

End Stop Option:

"What is an end stop"
End stops keep the door from flying off the track. Standard end stops are designed to fit at the far ends of the track, secured by the lag bolts. Adjustable end stops slide along the rail and tighten down with set screws wherever you wish.

Wheel Style:

"Tell me more … "
Choose from a variety of wheel options such as a matching steel wheel or a black Hush wheel. Or upgrade to a stainless steel wheel or a stainless steel Hush wheel. Hush wheels are made of a high quality, durable polymer and make for smooth, ultra-quiet operation.

Fastener Option:

"What's this?"
This refers to carriage bolts (which attach the hanger to the door) and lag bolts (which help secure the track to the wall). Choosing your fastener finish lets you customize the look of your hardware kit to your liking.

Box Rail

Box Rail Mounting:

"What does this mean?"
Please specify whether you want to mount the hardware kit to the wall or the ceiling so we can ensure you receive the proper mounting brackets.

Lag Bolts:

"What's this?"
Here you can specify whether you would like to order lag bolts through us or supply your own. A variety of finishes is available for those who wish to order lags through us. Save a trip to the hardware store with our high quality lags.
