garage doors

Planning projects to start in 2013....

Residential Carriage House Doors By Fimbel ADS
I've been dreaming about a pergola over my garage for quite some time.  It was denied by the HOA in my hood {lesson learned: never live in a deed restricted community again}.  Also, since 1/3 of my house facade is a garage door, I need to make it cute!  I priced out snazzy carriage doors like these, but at over $1,000 it just ain't happnin'.  I did however think I could slap some carriage hardware on my existing builder standard metal garage door and possibly swing a knock off.


I would love to get that french or english garden look with the carriage doors, vines, and lush casual landscape, but with the concrete box that it is now {and oh, do I love that box}, we have a looooooooong way to go.  Our landscaping currently consists of two sad little oak trees that are barely taller than I am and a few plants that are the size of some of my shoes : /


heart.


Another thing I've been looking into is faux painting my garage door {and possibly front door} to look like wood...but I'm not sure that with the real wood shutters it would be the right solution...


I'm still thinking about a fun color for my front door, but haven't come to any conclusions on that either....


I might age it a little...

I guess that's it for now...bedtime {yawn}.  I'm taking the afternoon off tomorrow to work on the house!  yay!!!  Hopefully new pics soon :)

  7. A faux wood effect is a great idea! I just hope that it matches the overall look and color of your house. You don't have to spend an awful amount of money for a garage door. Your idea of giving it a change of color and adding some carriages on it would do the trick. Good luck on your makeover!
