Come take a quick walk with me as we head outside to your front yard for a moment. Now turn around and take a nice long look at the front of your home. What do you see? A painted front door, maybe some shutters… what about that big empty white box — the garage door!
Let’s be honest, most of us have dull boring garage doors, but with a very minimal cost you will be amazed at the huge impact you can give your front. Today I will be sharing how to install Faux Garage Windows!

Are you with me on this? Check out how great these faux garage door windows look!
We had done some searching for a way to inexpensively update her garage doors and stumbled upon these faux garage door windows
from Home Depot. NOTE : It looks like HD no longer carries them, but Amazon does now!!
They come in pair of two.
Amazon sells the pair of windows
in three different colors; almond, sandstone and white.
This was roughly an hour long project at a beginner’s level of difficulty.
With four garage window panels total, first we centered the middle two on the garage door. The box comes with a template but after the first window is installed, it tears and is not really needed.
The next step was to mark the hole locations and then drill pilot holes.
Then using a level, double check that the windows are properly aligned. Since we had pre-drilled, the windows went up easily just using a screwdriver.
Can you see how real these garage windows look? They even reflect just like windows would!
