Garage Door Hardware


Decorative hardware is a great way to add a quick updated look to your garage door.  After reading this post on 320 Sycamore, I decided to freshen up the appearance of our garage door as well.

Before pictures of the garage door in the fall

...around the holidays

and a full view of the front of the house.

Garage door with new hardware.  

I purchased the hardware from Ebay for under $30.

It was very easy to install, but there are also magnetic options if you do not want to put holes in the door.

*Be sure the handles don't stick too far out to prevent the garage door from opening and closing.  I forgot to check before adding the handles and I literally held my breath hoping I didn't jam the the garage door opener. My husband would have loved that one!!

  54. Nice home Brandi. Looks like you and your fam shouldn't have any problems located the handles now. Lol. The first thing which came to mind upon seeing the post was slamming my finger in my garage door one night after the dog got loose (I put him in the garage).

    Talk about painful. Lol. I was in tears and it took my finger a couple weeks to reduce swelling and almost 5 months to re-grow my finger nail.
