One Hour and 30 Dollar Craftsman Garage Door Makeover

What can you do to improve the curb appeal of your home in less than an hour and with about $30?

I have been wanting to do this for YEARS...I don't exactly know why I haven't.  But finally, while walking the Home Depot clearance aisle--one of my favorite bargain bins to rifle through--I found a garage door hardware set for $6.  Yes, $6!!!  So, there was the motivation.

In a few minutes, my hubby was able to attach the hardware to the garage door.  It instantly looked great, but it was still missing something.  So I had my hubby pick up some vinyl trim and he created faux window grates in the four small windows of the garage door.  Tah Dah!  Love it!

Now don't fret if you've missed out on the $6 clearance hardware kit.  The pieces can be found in the gate section of Home Depot, or you can just buy a whole kit...they are anywhere from $12 to $39 and even include instructions on how to place the hardware for various two-and three-car units as well as gates.  Very cool!

  1. Wow! I love the transformation. And I still can’t believe that you only pay $6 for that. I was really amazed how a simple and inexpensive hardware could make a big difference.
