First item on the list is the wood, what type you want to use and the look you are going for. If it is a distressed antique look you may want to consider recycled barn wood. If you want to build your own then a trip to your local home improvement store is in order.
The best wood that is not going to cost too much and is readily available would be pine, select pieces with some unique character like knots and you are ready for the next step. If money is no object then you may want to consider the higher end woods the professional at the home improvement store can point those out for you if needed.
Second item on the list is the sliding barn door hardware, if you are not super handy or know all the parts you will need to hang the door properly your best approach is a hardware kit, it will include everything you need for the door, however if you are doing a two door system be sure you have a kit for each door.
The final steps are the assembly of your wood panels, painting or staining them and then install the track on the wall over the entrance of the room you are doing and then install the hardware on the door or doors.
