I love the character it gives two simple garage doors.

The inspiration came from this post (and which I pinned here ). I originally bought the hardware from Home Depot but was disappointed because the longest I could find the hinge/strap pieces were 8". I searched online and ultimately bought this kit , which included longer 12" straps, which I really wanted, and for half the price of what I had paid at Home Depot. For about $50 and only a few minutes of our time, we've added a lot of character to otherwise plain garage doors. See what a little primping can do?
