Faux Carriage Garage Door

Whew!  School is getting ready to start and I've been working every minute finishing projects in the classroom and home like crazy. It reminds of that feeling of  "nesting" when you're pregnant and just about ready to deliver and you start cleaning and finishing projects before the baby comes. One of my favorite projects I just finished is carriage doors- faux style.  Thanks to Jeanne at Bee's Knees who inspired me to do this project. After seeing how easy she made it look, I was hooked.  The only tough part was figuring out measurements for the windows and the hubster figured that part out with my brother in law.  The rest was easy peasy! Check it out.

BEFORE
                                                     Plain gray with leftover hardware from original door I spray painted black.

This is the hubster measuring each window pane 12 inches apart with Frog Tape and his level.

This is a stencil I made to use for the hardware.  I googled carriage door hardware.  Found the one I liked and blew it up on an overhead to 16 inches.  I used black glossy acrylic paint from Michaels. I spray painted all stenciling and windows with a sealer.


AFTER
We are definitely House Proud!
