Garage Entry Makeover!



All Summer
long I have wanted to redo my garage entry door. I saw it on Just a Girl (love her site btw) and I knew it was the one redo that I could fit in my schedule.


Before


After


Voila!
New and improved. I have to admit it was kind of a pain. I skipped the priming step, which was really silly of me! So I had to do several touch ups and then polyurethaned it several times, so the paint wouldn't come off. I got the vinyl letters from Shelley Smith of Wonderfully Wordy. It's one of the easiest and best redo's I've seen online. I LOVE love the look of it and it makes me happy every time I drive in my garage. Which is what a redo is about right??



Have a blessed day!

  1. Gorgeous! Very London/industrial chic. I'd be happy if this was my front door, let alone my garage entry door. Gotta go, I've just spied your link to your laundry room redo...Meredith xo.

  14. I love seeing makeovers of unexpected places! I once painted a trompe l'oeil mural in our closet-like master bathroom behind the door. No one ever saw it unless they were using our bathroom and had the door shut, but it seemed like a great place to spruce up a boring wall that would be stared at a lot and it was a great way to practice my mural skills.

  21. How neat! You did a great job. I just love paint, it's the easiest way to freshen something up. I need to take some to my garage door. We had some shelter dogs for a few months, and they were terrified of storms. One day we had them in the garage and a storm came through while we were out. We came home to dogs chillin' on the couch. They had clawed the door to shreds and somehow managed to gnaw on the knob in such a way that it opened. Needless to say, it needs some tlc.
    Got a new blog up, btw. :)
    Have a great week!
