Garage Door DIY Windows

Like many homeowners, Steph had those plastic decorative panels on the outside of her garage windows. She never liked them, so when we recently made some changes to her garage door, one of those changes was to muscle those out and toss them in the garbage.
She liked the look of the open windows, but this being Florida, she didn't like the overabundance of light and heat the windows now let in! I know, Florida problems ?
The solution came in the form of painter's tape and frosted glass spray! Here's what we did to reduce the amount of heat and light coming in and add a little update to the windows.
Here's the garage door with the finished windows. See that hardware? You all voted on which you liked and hardware A won! (See our post here to read the details about the hardware we used and how installation is as simple as putting a magnet on your fridge!)
This was a low cost solution to the problem of too much heat and light, plus it can be considered reversible as the paint could be scraped off with a razor blade if we wanted to change up the look. But for know, we are happy with the change.
What could you do to update the look of your garage? Hardware, change out the windows? paint? Let us know in the comments below!

Hello. I am wanting to remove the cracked sunburst inserts on my garage door. If I remove them, do I need to add anything to make the glass panels stabilized now that the insert thickness is gone?

After we removed the inserts in my garage door, there was no stabilization needed.

How did this hold up over time?
