Down on Main Street/Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors is a weekly blog event hosted by Norm 2.0. For my entry this week, I’m concentrating on details.

First glance of this delapidated building on Main Street in Sedalia, Missouri is not something to really write home about.

But when looking closer, there’s a half post missing that would give this door more symmetry. And that’s just the beginning. What about the little hand carved diamond detail on the remaining post? Too bad about the trim hanging by a thread. Not to mention the warping an peeling paint. Guess this one’s got a lot of tales to tell.Β BlueDoor2 (2)

And the unusual shape of this transom window is something the original builder must have wanted to give a little charm to. You can see just where to begin scraping paint if you wanted to tidy it up a bit. I think it’s a beauty. I sure hope someone in this town realizes what treasures we have before tearing them all down. I hope it’s not too late for this one.

  1. A cute building – yes, I wondered what happened to the right pillar:):) The door looks narrower than I am used to (for this side of the ocean!)
    Thanks for visiting me. Today we had our first sun for a few hours – it’s like I’m coming alive! Hope your sun will come soon!
