1 Day
Easy
If you're tired of your boring standard garage door, I'll show you how to take it to the next level and make it look like a custom wood carriage door! Some basic materials and a little know-how, along with the right kind of door, will help you achieve this great look in as little as a day.
Want to achieve that custom look and get curb appeal without replacing your garage door?
If you have a standard door with a wood-grain texture, you can take it from boring...
...to car-stopping in a few easy steps.
Next, apply the glazing. I make my own glazing and have the details as well as paint tips over on my blog. This is the same method I use on my furniture.
In a day, you can have your garage looking like the custom order, rustic carriage door you've always wanted. Come on over to the blog for more details!

    HOW MANY COATS DID YOU DO OF THE DARK CHOCOLATE EXTERIOR PAINT. I SEE YOU DID 2 COAT OF THE ORANGE AND ONE OF THE STAIN. ALSO, WOULD YOU SUGGEST PAINTING THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR AS WELL? THANK YOU

    Yes, years ago I owned a kitchen with metal cabnets I did this same treatment and it lasted for years, people would come in my kitchen and insist that they were wood. This was 50 yrs ago, and now I am ready to try this treatment on my garage doors. Thanks, for the reminder! Judy
