The BarnCraft Modern Westwood Barn Door allows you to create a unique interior for your home. The Westwood door features a premium sliding barn door in beautiful Birchwood. Birchwood is a fine, textured wood and makes a great surface for painting or staining. This door comes fully assembled making it easy to install. The Westwood door also comes in a variety of finishes so it appeals to a wide range of tastes. You can choose from the traditional, distressed, or antique finish, or go with an unfinished door. The Westwood Modern Door can also be combined with various hardware options including pull handles, rollers, and a privacy lock to create numerous interior doors for your home. We recommend ordering two Westwood doors to make a double door, an even bolder and more interesting statement in any home.

You will enjoy many paint and stain options as well. If you choose to DIY the finish yourself, see below for step-by-step instructions.


Finishing Guidelines


Going the DIY route to finishing your BarnCraft Westwood Barn Door? We have everything you need to guide you along the way. First, we suggest you choose a quality product such as Behr, Sherwin Williams, Minwax or Cabot.

At the BarnDoorz factory, we use water-based products, but you can use water, oil, or solvent-based products based on your preference. When painting your door, we suggest using a primer coat and a compatible finish coat. For best results, sand all surfaces between coats of primer and finish.

Be sure to confirm that the top, bottom, and side edges of the door are finished correctly. Inspect your door thoroughly before installation. If you notice a problem, notify BarnDoorz for further instructions. Prior to finishing, follow the Storage & Handling guidelines below.


Storage and Handling


●Before installing your new barn door, allow 24-48 hours for the door to adapt to your area’s general humidity and temperature.

●Always store your door flat in a clean, dry, well-ventilated room. Protect it from dirt, water and, if stored for long periods of time, seal with a high-quality sealer or primer.

●Do not expose door to abnormal heat, direct sunlight, direct moisture, extreme dryness or humidity.

●Deliver door to your building site after plaster and cement are completely dry and avoid exposure to air-conditioned or heated environments prior to finishing.

●If stored on the job site, and to avoid moisture absorption, be sure to seal all ends and edges with a wood sealer.

●To prevent oils and dirt from penetrating the wood grains, always handle door with clean or gloved hands.

●Always lift and carry (do not drag) door to prevent surface damage.
