We’ve been working on our fixer upper house for quite a while now. You have no idea how much of an improvement just this view of this side of the house is after removing over 40+ bushes from the front and this side of the house, and getting the house painted. But it was still looking quite plain and boring and I love to add character and bit of craftsman/farmhouse style to our home.
So in less than 5 minutes and about $15 out of pocket this is how my garage door looks now!
Pretty good after for under $20 bucks and like 2 minutes of time! I like those kind of projects :)

So let me share my secret – there wer NO holes/drills/or screws were involved because all of those pieces are magnetic! I did some research, read reviews, and ordered this set of magnetic garage door accents from Amazon.
They are a heavy duty plastic type material with super heavy duty magnets. So yes your garage door needs to be metal for these to work but most garage doors are. All I had to do was take them out of the package, decided on placement, and then just let the magnets snap them into place.
I have had them installed for a while now, actually about 6 months. I wanted to make sure they were going to hold up, not move or fall off, fade, etc before I shared them with you. They have never fallen off and never even moved (unless someone messes with them) and they still look brand new after being in the sun for 6 months. So they get a 5 out of 5 stars review for me! I figure if a few years down the road they do fade, a quick coat of spray paint will have them back to new but so far they look great.
So if you want a simple and inexpensive project to add some character to your plain garage door, here’s the kit I ordered and have been very pleased with! Gotta love simple projects that add big impact!
