"New" Garage Doors

I love my house...I really do!  It's small, but it's a great house.  But, when looking at the front, it is 80% garage. 
I have been talking about wanting new, more decorative garage doors for years now.  We would drive through neighborhoods and I would stare adoringly, somewhat enviously at those houses with the pretty garage doors.  I knew we couldn't afford new doors for a while...they are low on the priority totem pole, you know?

So imagine my elation when I stumbled upon a garage door makeover with simple hardware (I'm sorry, I can't find the original inspiration to link)!  Brilliant, I tell you...I was on Amazon the same day ordering the hardware (see links at bottom of post) and my handy hubby installed over the unseasonably warm PA weekend!

The hardware cost us a total of $70...and what can I say?  Minimal cost for major impact!

They were plain, builder grade garage doors.  Functional yes, but certainly not fabulous.

Seriously loving the transformation!

I just did this to our garage doors right after Christmas! It does make a major difference for such a little cost! We got our hardware off of Ebay. It is under A Few Of My Favorite Things Post!

I pinned this great idea. Our garage door is one huge 1 for a 2 car garage...it's very similar to yours. I love the way yours turned out, but I'm not sure if it ewould look right on a huge door...hmm. Anyway, I love your makeover, it's amazing what $70 in hardware can do!

The hardware really does add so much--great makeover! Thanks for linking up to Share the Love Wednesday. Hope you'll be back this week--

You have a pair of garage(s) in your house? Now that's something. The two garage doors actually made your front area look better. It made the front of the house imposing and majestic. Maybe you can put up pictures of what's behind those huge doors! I'm there are some here who are curious as to what it looks inside.

An additional concern for RBR was that the last garage was so close to the white line marking the pit exit that
its drivers were not able to accelerate up to the speed limit before crossing it, which created a small disadvantage at each stop.

As to make our vehicles much secure in home , we have to think about the garage. If the garage door is much strong and is made up of high material then our vehicles security is much high. If there is some need of repair the we can use various service providers likegarage doors Lake Worth etc. They should be much professional.

This is a very interesting perspective, however I think judging someone's ability to do a job solely based upon their handwriting is a little unfair. I know my handwriting changes depending on what I am writing. I also think the fact that pretty much nothing is written by hand today; from a college to an email, that this can affect people's handwriting for the worse....
