You Can Paint Your Garage Door To Look Like Wood

I completed the big one of the two garage doors that I am painting to look like wood.  Here is a picture of the completed garage door.

Steel Garage Door Painted To Look Like Wood

This door really came out looking great.  In the homeowners own words, "It looks just like wood."  Here are a couple of photos of the painting in progress.  In the first of the following two photos you can see how I use my shade tarp to keep the sun from shining directly onto the surface of the garage door.  When the sun is shining directly onto the surface of the door the paint dries so fast as I apply it that I can not create the wood grain look.  So I always use my shade tarp.  You can also see in this photo how I tape off the center panels as I am working on them.

In the next photo I am almost done with the garage door.  I just have to paint the bottom row of panels to look like wood and then seal the door with a clear acrylic uv sealer.

Another look here at the completed door.  Painting a garage door to look like wood really makes the curb appeal for the home go up several notches.  It just adds a richness that you can't get any other way.

Hundreds people have emailed me asking for the technique I use in creating this wood look on a garage door.  So many people have asked that I created a step by step tutorial that can guide the average homeowner in creating this wood look on their own garage door.  If you are interested in finding out more about the tutorial please click here - Garage Door Tutorial .
