Painting A Garage Door In Odessa, FL

I was able to start and finish painting a double car garage door to look like wood this week.  This first photo is of the door completed.  The colors I used on this door is as follows.  I used SW Toasty as the base coat of color, then I used SW Terra Brun as the first color of brown for the wood grain, then I used SW Black Bean for the second coat of wood color.  I matched the color of the garage door to the color of the colonial style shutters and front door.

The next picture shows me just getting started.  The door was painted a light yellow to match the color of the home so first thing I did was to wash the door down really well and then prime it.  After that dried I applied the Toasty color as the base coat.  The picture shows where I have just started by applying the primer.

The next day I came back and started on the wood graining process.  After I got all the center panels painted and the vertical areas between the panels painted I then start on the horizontal area between the rows of panels.  This took longer than one day but here is where I am at the beginning of the last day on the job with me starting off the day taping off the horizontal areas to get them ready to paint.

This next photograph shows a section of one of the rows.  Just look at how nice that wood grain is coming out.  It looks exactly like wood.

This last photograph is a close up the completed door.  I am really happy with this garage door and the clients really love it.
