Amazing! I've been wondering if there was a way to make my new garage door on my old house look more like the original one and I think you have given me the answer! I never saw the original, but the remaining hardware suggests that it's not unlike your painted version. Mind if I use yours as an inspiration?
and if you like i can post the original.
(the original is better haha, so i only did mine)
and it would be so cool if someone else uses the idea.
but only when you promise to post it here, lol.
i have to warn you it was more work then i expected it to be.
it took me a whole week.
the most work was the black shadow lines.
i put tape on the door to paint it easy(that cost me a day, it was hard to make the lines go on), but because the surface was not so smooth all the paint got under the tape.
so i had to do it over by hand.
so good luck when you gonna start.
you need to use a good primer and then it doesn`t matter if you use paint for the inside or the outside on top.
well...only if your garage is metal like mines.
when its wood i guess you can only use paint for the outside.
Thanks for being so generous! I'd love to see the original. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't be able to do it until next summer since the rain is about to start here in Oregon, USA and I've many other projects and work to do.
