I am so excited about this little diy project my husband did for me today!
Today, I am sharing how to upgrade to a Carriage style garage door for under $40.00. Could be even cheaper for you actually if you have a smaller garage door.
We chose to use two kits at $18.97 a piece from the Home depot.
Crown metal works is the manufacturer and I have to say I am pretty impressed with their hardware.
We would have loved to get the faux windows, however, our garage door was not right for them. They do look awesome though don’t they in the picture?
So this is what we started with
typical white plain metal garage door.
I have always been envious of Carriage style garage doors. But if you ever priced them out, they are are super expensive. For a two car garage, well over $2,000.
I never knew they sold just the hardware for them to create this look.
It was thanks to a pin on pinterest I saw, showed Mike and he loved it. That is always the key to any project around here. If the man likes it, you got it~
So you start with the hunky man, sorry, not included with your kit:)
A power tool,
measuring stick and marker
Mike said the instructions were very simple to follow and he had NOT a one problem!
Whew, that was a good thing, because when he is in project mode and a problem arises, I tend to leave the area, STAT.
He takes these things seriously.
It would appear he started in the middle and worked around that.
I left the vicinity regardless of the project going well or not. It was a balmy 95 degrees and I did not want to hover over him.
The hardware is strictly ornamental.
I would not recommend your kids hanging on it, or tugging it. Although, it seems pretty durable, it is strictly for aesthetics.
And Viola, a new garage door!
It’s all about curb appeal in my opinion.
The Traditional Style Decorative Garage Door Hardware Kit instantly adds curb appeal to your home.
Easy to install makes the transformation simple and fast. It’s like installing a custom garage door for a fraction of the price. Works on wood or metal doors.
For $40.00 or less what a HUGE improvement imo.
NOTE: Since this post a few years back, currently there is a new kit that is even better. They are magnet hardware and faux windows. My sister has them and they look amazing.

I was not compensated to write about this product, although I should be…I have a feeling they are going to fly off the shelves now.
Pin it, do it, Love it~
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you stick around and become a regular.
Would love to have you.
