Garage Door Makeover

Carriage house-styled garage doors are very popular right now but can be very costly to install. Recently I had a client who wanted to have the look of wood without having to replace her existing metal-paneled doors. Fortunately, I was able to use the existing color as the base. The next step was to glaze the doors with a warm wood tone. While the panels already had some wood-like texture, it was not well defined, so for the third step I used a dark eggplant and black glaze and a woodgraining tool to add interest and really bring out the texture. The results were amazing.
