The door was custom made by my contractor using a closet door track. Here is a link to my blog which has some more information... http://www.no29design.com/2012/05/barn-door-is-officially-done.html

Amazing - read your blog - did u paint the entire unit or just strips? - Would love to use the exact same lay out you have used in our basement but we don't understand how you colour matched the hemnes to the strips - if you painted the ikea pieces aren't you worried it will peel? Thanks so much

I purchased the Hemnes set because it is made out of wood and easily paintable. Once the pieces were attached and the finish strips added we had the whole room sprayed, including the board and batten. No peeling whatsoever!

The media wall is actually five pieces from the Hemnes Line at IKEA. It was made to look built in. You can see more on my blog here... http://www.no29design.com/2012/04/built-ins-part-one.html

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Katos got a very custom look for a bargain on this media wall. She arranged five storage elements from Ikea and had the builder paint them to match, put them in place and add finished pieces in between. She hung shelf paper behind the shelves to add dimension. The wall has a custom built-in look but cost only about $2,000.The cabinets and drawers hold books and games as well as media equipment for family movie nights. Mia and her brothers, Stephen and Anthony, love to play Wii down here as well. "When we have parties, all the kids just run down here to hang out," Katos says.

This is an ikea built-in. They took furniture pieces and used trim and moulding to make it appear to be a built in. The left two are what I am considering for our space. It will fit one cabinet with drawers and glass upper. It also will fit on set of shelves to the side.
