Garage doors are a familiar visual for the neighborhood, adorning homes both modern and traditional. Whether they’re dressed with a basketball hoop or left plain, People try to select the right garage door that will harmonize with their home’s aesthetic. However, it is fun to spice up those garage doors once and a while! If you’re seeking inspiration, there are plenty of fantastic DIY projects to creatively shake things up.
Create A Masterpiece
A beautiful, eye-popping mural is a popular DIY project for homeowners and their families. This idea is particularly suited for a broken garage door! If a garage door isn’t being used at all, it becomes a blank canvas with endless creative possibilities. Any leftover house paint, brushes and rollers will come in handy as well.
Using crayon or chalk, draw an outline of the mural design on the door. Once completed, mix and match whatever colors you wish! You may want to consider a wildlife scene with lush plants and animals, or a stylized design that’s bold and modern. For further inspiration, check out garage door art examples online.
