Cannot wait to show you the transformation:


Ps: I am not super handy and to me this was a super easy project!!!


Okay guys...I am obsessed with garage doors....you know those beautiful wood doors that look like carriage doors....filled with windows, beautiful hardware, detail, & charm?!  I bet you know exactly what I am talking about!  However, they come with an insanely hefty price tag...some thousands and thousands of dollars!


Garage doors can add SO much to the appearance of a house!  A lot of the time, they are even positioned on the front of a house.  We have a double wide garage door and a single garage door on the side of our house


Even though they were on the side...they looked super BLAH.  They also had a number of dents in them and just looked like they needed some TLC!   I started researching garage doors and was overwhelmed to say the least at just how much my dream garage doors would cost!  After just purchasing a new home I knew getting new garage doors was just not in the budget!  


I started researching ways to give my garage doors facelifts that would not break the bank and I found the most amazing garage door kits on amazon that literally totally transformed my garage doors and I could not be happier!!! :)


Scroll down the post to get all the sources linked! 


Here is what they looked like before!  

I really wish I had taken more Pictures!




Here is what they looked like AFTER!  









Sorry my garage doors are a little messy .....they really need to be power washed ASAP! lol!  But, I am so excited about this post and how these awesome finds can totally refresh and re-do your garage door faces!!! whohoooooo :)


Also: my husband was super against this at first.....he didn't even want me to order them because he thought it would make the garage doors look cheap....however he seriously loves them now and feels bad that he ever doubted me!

The End Result!

We could not be happier with how our garage doors turned out!  We have had mutiple neighbors ask us if we had new ones installed!  It was out very first DIY project we did on the house before moving in!


-The magnetic hardware pieces hold up great...even when the garage moves up and down


-The vinyl looks awesome and went on smoothly without a hitch!
