I want my garage orange, brown and red!


Our garage door broke...and to make a long story short, it looks like we are going to get the springs fixed on it and paint our wood garage door so that it looks better than the beat up one we have right now. The question is - what color should we paint it? Click on the pic to see the garage door images better...but how cool would be to use some of these styles? How could you not love the audaciousness of the '50s?

Considering I will be staring at it.....white would be great. It is bad enough our houses were built in the fifties!

Dorien - thinking about it, thinking about it.

50s Pam - Cool site, I am glad you are OK with me putting up the pic. Some pretty awesome styles back then.

I prefer white, actually. But if you're the type who wants bright colors for your door, I'd choose orange. =) Looking at some vintage sites will give you an idea of which color would be best.
