How to quickly and inexpensively update your garage doors!

Ever wondered how to update your garage doors, without spending a ton to replace them?

It was high time for a change to the exterior of our house. We didn’t have the means to replace the garage doors although dented in a spot and rough in other areas. After a bit of research, I learned that I could simply paint them with gel paint and voila’ an entirely different look!

I got wild with the gel paint one day and one thing led to another. Because you know, if you paint one exterior door ALL the exterior doors need to match!

I was a bit intimidated at first, because well a garage door a lot of a door and what if I didn’t like it? Turns out this little kit was all the confidence I needed.

I started in a little corner and then bravely finished both doors in one afternoon. I even had a bit left to give both of my exterior doors a nice coat of fresh paint so they would match!

I love how warm the paint made our home look. The wood grain look is so lovely and I like knowing there’s still durable steel underneath.

Also an added bonus, I can’t see the fly specks anymore. Flies seemed to love these old white south-facing garage doors.

How have you make huge changes to your exterior with very little?
