Garage Door Makeover

We are slowly but surely trying to renovate our new home we purchased back in November. Weekends that we are actually in town (which is not very often) are really the only time we have to knock out a project or two since we both work full-time. This weekend we were in town but we kept our nephews (ages 3 and 1.5) for the weekend so our only time to knock out a project was during nap time. 

We had an hour and half so we decided to tackle the garage door. Here's the before. BORING!


So I made some tea and supervised as my wonderful husband fancified our garage door. An hour later we had the finished product: 


I am pleased. The best part? It only cost $10. We purchased the below kit at Home Depot for around ten bucks and then you just install it by screwing on the various metals. Instant curb appeal! Here's a picture of what the kit you can purchase at Home Depot looks like:


For only an hour of time and for only $10 I am pleased. Only problem is now I want to replace the lanterns on either side of the garage. I swear working on the house is a domino effect!

  15. I'd love to know what state you live in where they only charge $10.00! Our Home Depot in Idaho charges $39.95 for one of these and to do my garage doors, it would cost me $80.00!!!
