Our house looked like this:
Pardon the snow pictures; since my server crashed earlier this year, I’ve lost many of my pictures.
Not bad, but this eyesore wasn’t doing a thing for our home’s facade.
Our garage door was big, white and booorrrring. I’ve been crushing on Coach house garage doors since forever, but because they run in the upwards of $2,000, they aren’t exactly in the budget right now.
As usual, I decided to get creative. I had an Amazon gift card to burn, and I’ve looked at these several times.
AntiqueSmith Magnetic Decorative Faux Hinges- $18.88
And these magnetic “window panes.”
Magnetic Garage Door Window, Decorative Black Window Decals for Two Car Garage, $29.99
I promptly ordered them and, thanks to Amazon Prime, I received them two days later. All pieces were 100% magnetic, so if you make a mistake, or like me, can’t seem to get your “window panes” straight, you just pick them up and move them…no nail/screw holes, and no damage 🙂
It took me about 30 minutes to put them all on the door. I would recommend having a “spotter” to stand back and help you determine if you’re putting your “windows” on straight. Other than that, these things are easy-peasy to install.
I texted a picture to all my family when we were finished and several of them asked when we got a new door.
Doesn’t our house look so much better?
Let’s see that before and after:
Isn’t that a thousand times better? It’s amazing what just a simple, $50 change can do for your home.
