How are these doors constructed? - I love the style of your doors- can you explain how they were fabricated? MDF, drywall, hollow door, woor door etc? Many thanks!

I'm sure you could find any flat door and paint it with chalkboard paint. Such a fun idea! We sell sliding barn door hardware for those in the market for it. We are located in Idaho but ship our tracks all over the place. Our hardware is very high quality. We offer a variety of styles and finishes. We also specialize in custom orders. If you have a particular color in mind we own a powder coating facility which makes color options almost endless. The wheels on our tracks are unbelievably quiet, eliminating the grinding sound you hear with other tracks that use metal wheels. We see every single one of our products through from start to finish! contact us at http://www.basincustom.com or email us at info@basincustom.com or call 208-261-1270

I don't recall, but Benjamin Moore has a line where you can create chalkboard paint out of any of their colors. I have been using that lately.

Are both of the sliding doors painted with chalkboard paint?...or would that be too much black for the space? I have old glossy white doors that I am considering to paint.

The owners of the house already owned the magazine holder and I am not aware of where they got it. Looking at it, it would be an easy piece to replicate with a similar design and could be done by taking the picture to a local craftsman who works with wood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Sliding Doors: Transition in High Style
Encourage the family’s inner artists by using chalkboard sliding doors! They’re fun for the kids, a great place to jot notes on the fly, and easy to clean. Why not? Next: Browse more photos of sliding doors in home design
Scheer & Co. added this to Doors With Character, Raised in a Barn
Doors can serve several functions, too. Why not make them fun and interactive with a dash of chalkboard paint?
Shoshana Gosselin added this to 13 Ways to Paint an Interior Door
Create a chalkboard door using chalkboard paint.
Becky Harris added this to Rock and Roll at Home
The crisp black, white and red graphics on this White Stripes poster complements the modern architecture and chalkboard wall.
Scheer & Co. added this to How to Jazz Up a Solid-Front Door
If you're not particularly adept at coloring in the lines, express yourself with words. Applying chalkboard paint to a door is a great way to add interest, keep yourself organized and get kids involved in list-making. You can apply this chalkboard paint treatment to any door.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Chalk It Up
Barn doors are all the rage, and this one is extra charming with the addition of chalkboard paint. It's obviously part of a child's space but will easily transition as the child grows. I can imagine a fun game of hangman happening there in a few short years.
Or you could take the opposite approach: Choose your favorite poster, then display it solo on a blank wall for a clean, graphic touch.
