Hi friends! Are you ready to hear more about this FABULOUS sliding barn door handmade by White Shanty Design?!
If you follow along on Instagram, you probably have seen me share it there and read me gush about how about how much I adore it! It is truly both amazing and functional, so let me tell you some of the reasons why we love it so much. Besides being absolutely stunning and appealing to the eye, the door serves a purpose in our home that I didn’t even realize we needed!
As most of you know, we just recently finished up construction on our home. One of the last projects to be completed was adding on a new family room off of the kitchen. This is the room that now gets the most use aside from the kitchen itself and it is also the room that holds our television. Before we added the barn door the noise from the t.v. would radiate throughout and since the stairs to our upper level are located right off the kitchen, that means the noise would travel up to the rooms above. Which is something that we seriously try to avoid when there are two small children that we just put to bed! 😉
We had our contractor John install the door for two reasons. First, the size of this door is HUGE. Seth was so kind to customize the door to the opening between the kitchen and the new room. That’s roughly about five feet so that meant the door weighed over 300 pounds. Second, although my husband is getting better at being handy, with the size and my worry that he’d add a bit too much of the shabby to the chic trying to hang this gem, we decided to leave it to the professionals. And one of the benefits of having John hang this piece, he was able to inspect its quality. To this day (it’s been about 60 days up) John still comments on how well made and “awesome” it is (see addendum below). With that professional reassurance and clearly just looking at it, I am so smitten. The door is SO very well made and the hardware is very high end as well.
What is awesome too is that the room is completely surrounded by windows, so whenever we slide the door shut I have the comfort of knowing that we have complete privacy. I can’t explain how much peace of mind that gives me!
Even our girls approve! At any given time you’ll find them playing peek-a-boo around the door. You should hear their giggles as their little heads pop around the corner and to surprise one another. I may be a bit biased but it sure is cute. 🙂
Lastly, what I love about this door too is that I get to do my part to help a small business succeed! Seth Wright works out of Provo, Utah where he is literally building his dream. His story involves all of the great characteristics of Americana: small town, hard work, loving family, and beautiful mountain terrain (at least that’s what I think about when I think of the American Dream :). Seth’s been awesome to work with. He offered to speak directly to my contractor because he knew clearly that I wasn’t familiar with the construction lingo :), helped me to determine what best suits the space, and overall is just a genuinely nice guy. If you have any questions about this door or what it was like ordering please feel free to comment below and I’ll gladly answer as best I can or, go directly to Seth and he’ll fill you in on the details.
Here’s the future showcase studio of White Shanty Design. Doesn’t it look like a great creative space?! I think so!
Addendum: All furniture goes through some serious quality control testing. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at the proof below: 🙂
I strongly believe, “If you really love something, it’ll keep bringing you joy”. So in honor of finding pieces for your home that you’ll want to cherish forever, Seth’s team and I are excited to offer one lucky reader a WhiteShanty barn door, complete with hardware!
The only caveats are that the door cannot exceed 36 X 84 inches or be walnut or glass paneled. Also, the hardware is limited to the standard styles (up to $239 in value). But with so many great options to select from, you’ll have ample great pieces to choose from!
