All I wanted to do was get home, unload my groceries and take off my shoes, bra and makeup. In that order. It was a day filled with meetings and a check oil light that needed immediate attention. Oil is like caffeine for my eight-year-old Audi. And then, I rolled into the driveway, clicked the garage door clicker and saw the tired, dated and dirty garage entry door. I knew at that moment, once I changed into my paint splattered sweats, I was going to complete a garage entry door makeover that night!
I don’t know why I noticed it on this day, but this garage entry door makeover became a Priority 1 paint project.
Over time, this builder grade white door with brass hardware (not the new gold brass, but the circa 2002 brass) and mud and grime from kids, dogs, shoes and other unknown filth.
In less than an hour, I painted the garage entry door with the same color I used to paint this hutch. I made plans to install new hardware from Home Depot.
There is something about a painted door, even leading from the garage, that deserves a little love! Even my husband and kids noticed the painted door.
I added a vinyl sign from Etsy and ta-da! It’s a prettier entrance than a few days before the long day and low oil message. This garage entry door makeover makes me so happy.
