I don't have a before picture but imagine two big garage doors, white, with a couple of holes (one was a car accident, the other a bad hailstorm) and a big crack...  all this shadowing on my backyard exactly where I can put down the table and chairs for summer entertaining...yuk!! No way we had the money to replace them, so I got this idea, something to cover the holes from behind, some duct tape and quite a bit of adhesive plastic paper...

here is the full view from the kitchen's balcony (taken last year in winter... so everything looks quite grey and mossy!) with my mum's car lurking in the pic:

another full view, from downstairs: 

this is a WOP pic where you can see a big crack that was not covered yet by the black cat:

under the red butterfly there was one of the big holes, now closed and reinforced from the inside

with the cat - some of the crack is visible between the legs. (I messed up the design or while sticking it up... but was out of black plastic and never got round to buy more afterwards)

the cat close-up - you can also see some transparent paper that I put under him to reinforce the closing of the crack even more

the main butterfly on this door

another pic of the door before the black cat was on - you can see the crack again. these are the flowers and butterflies flying up on the side

the other door

the other butterfly kind of covering the other big hole

the main butterfly on this door

it is not perfect but I like it, and it's already a huge improvement form the white, damaged doors...
