The Garage Beautification Project

This house has a really nice garage.  It has room for one car, but also has a huge amount of storage off to the left side.  So you can easily store your bicycles, snow blowers, lawn mower, etc.  And for even more space, there is a bonus room above the garage, that has lots of potential, for whatever the new owners decide to do with it.

But.....with the rusty door above and the polished brass light fixture, it just seems a bit tired.  So we decided to make it more attractive.

What did we change?  Well, we added a Craftsman style light fixture.  And forged hardware on the garage door.

Then we dressed up the rusty door with a mahogany barn door.  And we topped it all off with a reproduction barn light,  to light the whole area.

And finally, we seal coated the driveway, to provide protection for years to come.

Quite a difference, don't you think?

Pin It


  1. Stunning! I love the color on the doors. Mickey

  2. Laurel, what's the paint color on the garage door? Did you paint it yourself and if so, any tips?

    1. We had the paint color matched to the siding on the I can't give you the exact color. Sorry! As far as painting it, we used one of the mini rollers to paint it, as well as a brush for the edges. It went very quickly!
