Carriage House Garage Doors

I would like to paint my garage doors to look like carriage house doors. They don't have any raised panels, just a horizontal wood grain.

The plan would be to paint a frame around the outside of the door and down the center in a complimentary color (trim color) then attach hardware. I thought about attaching trim to simulate the door edging, but I'm not sure about clearance with the top.

Just painting the simulated trim would look fine from the road, obviously up close it wouldn't be the same as having the trim attached.

If you add any trim to the doors make sure it has clearance - but you already know that.

Be sure to use the appropriate coatings for the door. Some metal doors specify latex only.

Don't know how much wood a woodchuck could chuck - always had to split/stack my own firewood

Are they union woodchucks? Or independant contractors?
