Garage Door Makeover

Pretend not to notice the peeling house paint - we are trying to decide which color to paint the house, so in the meantime I decided to spruce up the garage door! It is a plain white metal door with no handles (automatic).

I bought this garage door accessory kit for $18.00 on  here 
They also have magnetic (stick-on/removable) versions of the same thing (more $) 
but these were not difficult to install with an electric drill and a screwdriver.

All of these accessories are supposed to make your plain garage door look "carriage style".  
Since I bought this kit I've seen a lot of these style of garage doors around town. They are not functional (even the handle pieces), they just look nice.

Here it is with just the side pieces installed:

I didn't get around to installing the handle pieces because it was a billion degrees outside. Now I'm not sure if I want to have the handles or not. What do you think? 

This is NOT my house, but a similar garage door with the handles attached, so this is what it would look like WITH the handles....

Please comment below whether you think I should leave it as-is or add the handle pieces.

  1. Wonder what it would look like to have just one handle hung horizontally...if that's no good, then I would say NO to any handles.
