Faux Garage Door Windows

Are you looking for a fun little DIY project to do over the weekend? Look no further! I came across this idea while watching the Nate Berkus show the other day. I have become highly obsessed with this show over the last year. Anyway! This lady was on the show with a design dilemma. She didn’t have a whole lot of money to spend to replace her beat up ugly garage door. So they came up with the idea to paint the door and add faux carriage windows!

Honestly.. it looks pretty good for being faux windows

{See details over at Two Peas In a Bucket}




Up close looks great too!

I will never stop being amazed by the magic of spray paint.

Here is what you will need to achieve the same look for your garage door:

  • Carriage door hardware can be found here on Ebay for around $25 – Very easy to install, you just screw it right in
  • Painters tape
  • Rustoluem black gloss spray paint – found at Home Depot or Lowes

From a real estate agent standpoint, this is such a good way to add curb appeal without shelling out a ton of money for a brand new garage door. A definitely must if you are planning to sell your home soon or just want to increase your property’s value.

Enjoy your weekend!
