Today's project was a family affair! We had fun painting our garage doors and house numbers. What a difference a can of paint makes...our house instantly feels more updated!
Our garage doors are 15 years old. Over the years the doors have gotten scuffed and dented (but still work perfectly fine thankfully):
The doors were starting to show their age. However, new doors can be expensive, so Tal and I decided "if it's not broke, don't fix it."
Instead, we used some leftover paint from when Tal painted our bay windows a few weeks ago:
Tal and I used a 4-in foam roller for 95% of the painting and an angled brush for tight spots and touch-ups.
It was an easy project that took 3 hours from start to finish:
Previously, our aluminum doors were white, but today we painted the trim and doors a cream color that complements the siding on the side of our house.
(Hadley took a nap in her stroller while we were painting)
To most people, the change is probably subtle. To us, however, our garage doors look brand new!
Today Tal and I also updated our gold house numbers:
With some leftover spray paint, I painted the numbers and nails black:
Now our house numbers are more visible from the street:
The best part is that our garage door makeover was FREE! We had all of the paint and supplies in our garage, so this project didn't cost us anything!
This was the first time Tal and I worked on a DYI project with the girls since Hadley was born 9 months ago...and we loved spending quality family time outdoors!
