Easy Garage Door Makeover

the honeycomb home

with big impact!

Giving your plain garage door a fresh new look doesn't have to entail replacing it entirely.  In fact, you can get the same look for much less!

For this makeover, we used painter's tape to section the top four squares across the door.

Next, we used a thinner painter's tape to make a line vertically & horizontally across the center of each square.

We filled in the top squares with black paint to give the illusion of windows.

Applying the paint with a paint sprayer will give you a flawless look with no brush strokes.  Be sure to use outdoor paint.  Using a higher sheen will also help the "windows" look more realistic.

Next, a  decorative magnetic handle and hinges were placed on the door to give it the look of carriage doors.  The existing (functioning) hardware was also sprayed black to blend it all together.

The total cost for the paint and hardware was under $50!  Our neighbors thought it was a brand new door.

It made a big impact in the curb appeal of the house overall.  Not bad for a minimum investment of time and money!
