Brothers Brandon and Mike Kay are the JunkHunks, and they're one of the presenters at the Salt Lake Home Show.

One of the top design trends for Utah homes right now are the barn doors, and the JunkHunks say you can do them yourself!  In fact, they came on our show to demonstrate a simple five step process:

1) Determine Dimensions (Measure the height and width of opening)
2) Cut lumber 2 inches larger than the opening
3) Assembly (Screw or nail pieces together)
4) Paint/Stain
5) Hardware Installation (Track, Handles, & Hooks)

The JunkHunks will be on the Design Stage:

Friday, Jan. 10 at 3 p.m.
Saturday, Jan. 11 at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Sunday, Jan. 12 at 2 p.m.
