A DIY barn door napkin holder is a great idea to spruce up the look of your door. If you are like many people, your barn is not as beautiful as it could be due to a dull door. It’s an easy fix and something you can do yourself without having to pay anyone else to do it for you. It is also a good idea to save money and not have to spend it on any kind of costly furniture.
If you decide to make one yourself, there are some things you should keep in mind. You will need some wood, a double-sided adhesive and a piece of cardboard that will fit inside the door. Using the double-sided adhesive, you can glue the two pieces of wood together at the bottom of the door. This will allow you to lock the edges. Then you just stick the cardboard into the door.
Next you will want to measure the door and write down the measurements. You can use a tape measure so you can get a more accurate written result. Also, make sure you mark a pencil somewhere on the door to where you will hang the cloth. Draw a line to where you will attach the cloth. This will make sure the cloth will fit snuggly on the door.
Now you have your material. What you need next is to create a pattern on the cloth. Use the computer or a piece of graph paper to do this. You will want to make sure that you create a straight line so that your barn door will not be crooked when you hang it. You also want to make sure you leave enough room for the door opener to open and close smoothly.
Next you will attach the cloth to the door with the hinges that are in the middle of the flap. Use clamps to hold the cloth in place. After you have done this you will want to pull the flap aside. You will then want to cut off the old cloth and attach it to the bottom of the hinge so that it cannot come apart easily.
The final step is to put the new cloth on the door. You will want to make sure it is straight by holding it up to the light. If you do not have a beam that you can use, then you may want to use your hand to hold it up to the light. You should also make sure that it fits correctly. You may want to double check to make sure before you close the door.
After this is all done, you will want to test to make sure the flap works properly. Open the door as far as it will go. If you hear a click, then your flap is installed properly. You will then want to pull on the handle and make sure the door opens and closes properly.
Your final step will be to hang the napkin holder onto the door. You will want to make sure the door opens and closes by using the cord that is attached to the handle. Once this is done you will simply repeat the steps again to complete your DIY barn door. Your final goal will be to add a great finishing touch to your door and make it look like it just came out of the barn yesterday. By putting together the parts yourself you can ensure that this is exactly how it looks when you are done. Your barn door is going to be a big part of your home for quite a while, so make sure it looks fantastic from the beginning.
