How to Do a Easy Garage Door Makeover With Paint
I’ve seen tons of people doing garage door makeovers and I had to try my hand at it! It turned out to be painless and very economical. If you’re like me, you’ve got a Plain Jane garage that needs a serious facelift!
1. Apply painter's tape in a grid
Start off by cleaning your garage door, because these things get grimy! Once it’s all shiny and new-looking, grab your painter’s tape.
I laid my painter's tape in straight lines along the top boxes of my garage door. It’s actually very simple once you see the process in the video.
I made the style of windows I like most, but, as you can see from the technique, it would work perfectly well if you decided to try a different window style as well.
2. Paint the inside black
Once all of my “windows” were laid out, I grabbed my black paint and put down a heavy coat within each of my taped-up squares.
3. Remove the painter's tape
Doesn’t it look like magic as you watch the tape pulled away? It’s crazy what a few squares of paint can do for your old garage door.
4. Paint the door handles black
I also added some other black details. First, I applied painter's tape around the handle...
...then I painted it black.
5. Install black hardware
Next, I added black hardware, two pieces on each side.
