Thanks to Randy of Capelli Design Group, the project we’ve been waiting for is here!
If any of you Dallas/Fort Worth locals would like to have this done for you, while you sit back and relax, please contact Randy his email is
I have been scheming of ways to to make my garage doors into faux carriage doors for a while, but our friend Randy did it first! That makes my life SO MUCH EASIER!! Luckily, he and his wife took a ton of pictures too, so that we could feature it on the blog. And, I KNOW you all wanna see how it is done, well, here you go!
We have worked very hard and have spent a lot of time creating this tutorial! This project may not be reproduced on any blog without receiving Remodelaholic’s written permission before posting. If you receive permission, you may use the finished garage door image only, and link back to Remodelaholic for the tutorial. No part of the tutorial may be copied except for personal incidental noncommercial home use. If you build the project, and post about it, please link back to the instructions on Remodelaholic. Thank you.

Garage door opener Springs
**The space that is left at the top of the door in order to be able to operate, can be covered on the door frame (the actual wall portion of the opening) with an extra piece of case molding.
Remember that this could work for single garage doors too. And whatever design you love best you can try to imitate. Look for the carriage doors that you love, I sketched a few random options out, cause I like to sketch, no they are not perfect but you get the idea right? Good.
