Not Worn Out Its Welcome

On our way out to The Nest last Tuesday we stopped to pick up this entrance door, shown resting upside down, that we found posted on Craigslist.

The door, while perhaps in need of a refinishing, is solid wood, and it came with a sturdy Anderson storm door and two sidelights for just $125.

I will miss the beautiful beveled glass window in the poor, decrepit door that struggles to keep out the cold, but I'm hoping the replacement side lights will allow in more light than the current ones do.

And I like how the paneled crown top is reminiscent of the detail in the lower portion of the stained glass windows. It's not something that most people would notice, but the unifying detail helps the door seem like it belongs.
