Thursday Doors – November 19, 2015

Door Redux

Some of you may remember this one from back in January 2015 showing how hard winter can be on wooden doors around here.


We drove past the place again recently and the first thing I noticed was:


They got a new door!!!

My guess is that this was part of their renovations to mark their 175th anniversary:


As much as I liked the old red door, I really love the rich dark tone of this new one, and they even kept that funky 1/3 – 2/3 ratio:


I’ve always appreciated the charm of little country churches so I hung around for a few minutes to take a few more pics of the place:



Thanks for looking 🙂

    Like the wood pattern in the paint of the new door! My new area (in the country) is littered with little churches like this one – have to get used to these views after having lived almost all of my life in the city – but I like it!

    I really am excited for this church and their new door. Norm, I am also kind of “proud” of you, checking back on this door. Revisiting places is a great conversation starter! 🙂

  20. I love church doors, and this one is very beautiful. I love them so much, my post shows that I replaced my own front door with a church door! Thanks again for hosting!

    I especially like the photo of the entire facade – angles and offset features caught my eye. I’m glad you hung around to take that one!

  22. Yes, I wonder if it is the same door but refurbished? It looks beautiful. I like the wood but have to say I love the red too. Something about a red door on a white church! Glad they had the funds to do some renovation though – many churches these days are in major financial straits!

      I’m pretty sure it is a brand new door and probably custom-made. I liked the red one too. I do remember thinking how sad it was that it was allowed to deteriorate like that, but as I said winters are tough on wooden doors around here.

    I can imagine your excitement and surprise when you discovered the new door! It is beautiful and I love that asymmetical split.

    The was eye catching, but the wood is even more glamorous. Love the follow up on the door:)

    Wow! Stunning wood grain replacement! Isn’t it nice they didn’t just go get some boring 2-part glass doors? I wonder if they didn’t remove and refinish, but either way, I’m so impressed with their decision!
    Pretty little church is pretty 🙂
    Great doors!

      Yeah they really did it justice by letting the natural wood grain shine through. It sure is a cute little church and in fact there’s an even smaller one that we drive past sometimes on that same road. Unfortunately it has a very boring green door 😦

    I can’t say which one I like better… I guess it was necessary to do the change!
    Here is my door for today:

    Norm – that really is a cool door with the ratio – and maybe they upgraded the door because they saw your post (u never know) and I can’t decide if I like the red or the new wood tone best- but I had to stop by because from the reader this charming church seemed like a holiday card – and the second to last photo was my fav of them – have a good day –

    I was going to comment about how I like the red door, until I saw the replacement. That is beautiful, and when you have fine wood to showcase, nothing beats a natural finish. I really like that they preserved the unbalanced split between the two doors and I’m certainly happy that they didn’t go for the aluminum and glass commercial replacement door. this was a great find Norm.

  35. This is a truly charming church, and the new door is handsome and enhances the entrance for sure. Nice follow up. 🙂

    I prefere this one (though it seems to me it is just repainted).

  39. I have to agree with you Norm. The grain in that wood is gorgeous, it’s much nicer than the red door. I think it’s the white background that makes it stand out so well.

  43. New, or just repainted and fixed? 🙂 In any case, it looks very good! Let’s just hope no enemy writes “New door??” on it, which happened to my neighbour.
