Picture of Faux Wood Panels!

So a friend had a garage door in her business that everyone would see and needed to dress it up. It had to be super light weight so the door would still open. This is an easy fun project and can be used in many applications.

Step 1: Let's Get Started!

1. Cut the panels to size (all depends on where you will use them) I used the straight edge (I used a drywall T) to draw out my cut lines then used a razor knife to cut out the panels.

2. Using the straight edge and a sharpie I start to lay out the board pattern. I kept it sort of random with some boards being wider. The idea is that these are recycled barn boards, old and half dried out.

3. Now I start to draw out the wood pattern on each board, I start out with the knot and then draw a random pattern extending away from the knot and keeping the lines about a 1/2 inch from each other. Easy once you get the hang of it.

I was going to comment about the dangers of adding weight to garage doors and was instantly impressed with your creativity. Great work!

Nicely done! Plus it will help insulate the room it's in, so it's practical as well as decorative.

Wow, it looks like you really spent a lot of effort on this mate! It looks really great after you've coloured it in and worked out the grooves! The final look is really quite impressive and it's something you're going to be proud of having in your house now!

what kind of witchcraft is this?!? Freaking amazing work. I'd would have added a little 1/2 nest. Or an owl peeking out of tree cavity! :) Thanks for posting.
This looks great and I love how it looks with the faux brick :)

Me: "What an insanely great idea! How can anyone be so creative?"
...
Me: "Oh. It's my already-favorite faux-brick-wall-garage man again. - Well, that explains everything!" :D

Really cool! Hard to believe there's still pink foam underneath there somewhere. :D
