      Can you turn a regular door into a sliding door?

      Doors are great for opening up your space and letting in light, but they can also be quite boring. Here's how to turn a regular door into one that slides like the ones at an old farmhouse with these easy steps! You'll need a set of sliding door hardware as well as a large enough interior door to cover your entire opening. First attach the track using spacers so it doesn't move around when you slide open or closed, then screw on stoppers where there is no wall surface (you don't want anything getting caught). Hang your new-and-improved—door and voila: Your room has just become more romantic than ever before thanks to those gorgeous barn doors!
