The third time’s a charm when it comes to my garage doors. Case in point…
Look 1: The original garage door was a beastly, forty year old solid wood door… until I backed into it a couple of years back and knocked it off its track. I’m not gonna lie and say I wasn’t excited about it. Here’s the look when we bought the place.
Look 2: The new faux carriage style doors were definitely better. But really… looking back I’m thinking I was a little over-zealous when I proclaimed them “a significant improvement to the overall curb appeal of our abode”. I mean, it was exciting and all, but there was still plenty to do.
Look 3: And finally, four years later, I am beyond thrilled to share the look we’ve been working towards since taking ownership of the place!! I had the garage door painted to match the wood siding – in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. And I am probably most excited about the new lighting. There is a recessed light in the portico and we also added two black barn lights!! They are the All Weather Gooseneck from Barn Light Electric in black with a straight arm:
As y’all know, we also had a portico built over the side door, and the old door replaced with a standard 15-light door. I found the house numbers in an antique store on our annual visit with bestie R in New Orleans last year.
Here are all of the new exterior paint colors:
In addition to the paint, lighting and portico, I shared this spruced up corner of the driveway earlier this spring.
And the crown jewel of the garage is actually what’s inside… see all the details here!
There is one small thing left on the list for the entire Curb Appeal Project. I can’t wait to share!!
Flattered for the feature at Barn Light Electric!
