Adding Hardware To Your Garage Doors

Last year, I did a post on how to inexpensively update your garage doors.
You can see it HERE.
If you remember, we did our first door & it was perfect!
Then we got to the larger garage door & the spacing on the door was different. :(
We couldn't drill the handles close together like the other door, so we had to space them apart.
It drove me just didn't look right. We figured out how to fix it!!
I bought one more package of hardware like this...

  It was $12.50 at Home Depot.
We moved the handles in & made two sets to match the other door. 
We removed the handles & filled the holes with screws that we had painted white.
 I think it definitely looks better!
I still think this is a wonderful way to get the "look" for less!
I'm sharing with these blogs:
