Sliding Barn Door

I used to have a horrible, outdated bi-fold door on the bathroom at my cottage.  It's a tiny cottage and a regular door would never work because there was no room for it to swing open or out.  These are mediocre iphone pics since I don't have my nice camera, but you'll get the idea:

I've lived with it for two years, desperately wanting a sliding barn door, but knowing that the hardware for it is outrageously expensive.  Thankfully, I have a handy husband who used garage door pulleys, aluminum flatstock, and a hollow core door all available from Home Depot.  We decorated the front of the door with pieces of wood trim to simulate an actual barn door as well as some bead board.  Here is it below and I couldn't be happier:

It definitely helps to have a handy husband! :-)
