Easy Garage Door Upgrade
Get the carriage look for less without having to put holes in your garage door.
So they sell these magnets that are just vinyl silhouettes of garage door hardware, which go me thinking… of course.
Garage Door Decorative Hardware Kit
Small Bolt Cutters (Harbor Freight's worked fine)
Neodymium magnets (the extra strong kind, you can also find those at Harbor Freight)
Hammered Spray Paint
Then it time to cut off the back side of the screws using your bolt cutters. The head of the screw can bounce off very far, so please wear full safety goggles and cut into a box to trying catch the flying pieces.
Next glue the screw ‘muffin tops’ into the holes of the hardware using the E6000 glue, if you have too much glue, acetone works well for clean up. Working on wax paper was also helpful.
Pop them on to the door, and ta dah instant upgrade.
You might have to push them back into place every once in a while, but it’s easy. Make sure you ‘pull’ them off, if you slide them you’ll scratch your garage door.
Note: I put these up 7/13 I’m finally blogging these 3/15 and they still look fabulous, and I haven’t even had to readjust some of them!
