Three custom garage doors. These are roll up sectional type. Faces are mahogany t&g with mahogany trims. The painter finished them to be distressed. The man door in one does not open.

Nice doors. You should put a handle on the man door just to see someone try to open it…... ha ha….

Very nice, I wonder what they looked like without the paint. I guess I like the natural look. Also I like the man door touch.

Nice work!

Definitely look rustic, especially with the addition of the false man door. I’m sure you can’t even see the roll-up seams if you’re standing back a little ways, or driving by from the street.

Blue would not have been my choice, but hey, it’s not my house. I’d have kept the natural mahogany grain visible and spent a few bucks on a nice exterior finish. I think I mid-dark brown tone might work? Might require a bit more maintenence, but you’d get to gander at that gorgeous wood every time you came home.

Painting was never my idea. Some designer came up with that. Crazy.

That is such a classical European blue. It’s been one of my lifetime favorite colors. However, I would put a note on those doors somewhere that they are made of mahogany because someone is going to come along in a few years and want to strip the paint off and wonder if it would be worth the effort, and it would be. Would love to have seen them natural. Who decided to use mahogany in the first place? And, was the decision to paint made after they were already up? Maybe someone just had a lot of free mahogany lying around? Curiouser and curiouser. Very nice job, wouldn’t have suspected a roll-up.
