It’s amazing how quickly and inexpensive it is to transform something with paint. This was a makeover I gave our front door, garage & post with these three small cans of paint.
We have a semi detached home and I wanted our garage door to match with our neighbours so I did a colour match and then painted fake windows along the top. I love the look of windows on garages and since we weren’t going to be replacing ours this did the trick by masking off the lines with tape and using paint from the front door.
This was a really straightforward and inexpensive project that gave the impact I was looking for and worked with what we already had – except for the paint.
Here are updated photos from 2017 after I changed the light fixtures. I was a week before my due date and those nesting instints were the motivation to learn how to change exterior light fixtures…go figure. Anyway it wasn’t too hard to do though I was nervous and it made a huge improvement to the look outside.
A reminder of what it looked like when we moved in – maroon & beige.
I love decorating for the seasons so here’s the garage in winter with a garland I made from the spruce tree in our front yard.

I love the addition of the “windows”! Brilliant idea!
You are brilliant. I just came across your blog while searching for home decor ideas and I love your creativity. I wish I were half as good as your are.
I am planning to re-do my living room, or rather I’m planning a proper decor for it for the first time and I’m totally lost. Would you be able to give me some suggestions if I post some pictures for you?
I’ll really appreciate it.
Hey thanks for your comment. Sure you can send me your photos!
What colour is your door? And garage doors it’s the perfect colour???
Thank you! The front door is Blackout by Behr and the garage door was a colour match to my neighbours. It makes such a difference to paint the garage you should do it!
How about the trim? Everything so nice together 🙂
The trim and post are Raindrops by CIL.
I found one called crushed peony. Looks similar. Thanks again !
