Faux Painted Garage Doors

When we recently got the new wooden gate for our home, we started thinking we need to dress up the garage doors.  It's the first thing you see when you drive up.  Not my favorite thing, but that's how it was designed.  I prefer garages off to the side.

We looked into replacing our garage doors with new ones....the carriage look.  We got several bids and looked into Costco too.  We didn't want to go with wood, because our garage doors are exposed to full sun all day.

Our garage doors are more of a modern design with horizontal panels.

I research Craig's list and found some faux painters.  We decided to go with Irina, from IP Art and Design.  She is very artistic and has a large gallery of photos.  It's fun to see the before's and afters.
You can find here on Facebook and here.
New Look!

After



Now, we have our new wooden gate and faux painted garage doors for more curb appeal.
My husband added  hardware to the doors to mimic carriage doors. He ordered them from Amazon.



See the decorative clavos on the gate?  Those round clavos add character. We are thinking about adding them to our garage doors. False nail heads *decorative * Powder coated * Clavos means Nails in Spanish


Happy Friday!

  38. Yaşam alanlarında oluşan, tuvalet, lavabo veya küvet, duşakabin giderlerinde oluşan tıkanıklıkların çözümü son derece basit olmaktadır. Bu sayede de kolay bir şekilde gider açıcı makineler yardımı ile sorun çözümlemesi yapılmaktadır. Gider borusu tıkanmaları oldukça büyük bir sorundur. Tıkanan giderden su gitmeyince su basması meydana gelir. Elektronik akşamlara zarar veren bu durum aynı zamanda elektrik çarpmaları ve kısa devre yapılması durumunu da ortaya çıkarmaktadır.
