So you have noticed that your garage door is slowly becoming an eyesore in your neighborhood and it can be any day now that a neighbor will make a comment about it. Before that happens, you can actually do a DIY garage door makeover. Perhaps, you are worried about the expenses and the lack of budget for it? Well, you don’t have to continue living with that ugly garage door just because you don’t have the money to replace it. You can change how your garage door looks by making use of the simple things that you already have in your own garage. This method is very inexpensive and won’t require a lot of funds.
The first thing that you have to do is to clean your garage door. Actually, this is the very basic step to any makeover. Cleaning the surface and the edges of your garage door can do wonders and may have already accomplished half of the makeover process. Scrub the surfaces and the panels gently to remove the dirt. Try to remove any peeling paint and sand it too for a smoother feel.
After cleaning, check your garage for leftover paint. If you really have no funds for this project then you can make use of whatever paint color is there in your garage. But if you can spare a few bucks then don’t waste time and immediately head to the nearest paint store. Choose the color that is very becoming for your garage door. Throw in a primer for more protection.
Apply the primer on your garage door surfaces and let it dry for some time. After making sure that the surface is dry enough, apply the first coating of paint, allow it to dry, and then apply a second coating. If you are feeling a little more creative then you can try to paint the panels in a different color that is complementary to your main color. Now, you have successfully done a DIY garage door makeover!
