Hi there! Are you able to tell me the dimensions of the box newel? - Base height/width versus middle dimensions, etc. Thanks!

Thank you for your question. This newel post was a standard post from Interstate Lumber. We did not have the option to customize the dimensions, therefore, I do not possess the detail drawing for the item.

This baseboard is layered design so we could vary the flat stock width to wrap around wainscot and other custom cabinets. We selected a top trim that fit within the thickness of the trim to ensure the proper profile. We utilized a taller shoe moulding for the final layer of detail. The total height is 6". Thank you for your question.

The v-groove panel creates the natural spacing. We did not modify it. The planks are approximately 4" in width.

This entry foyer was over-sized to fit in scale with the balance of the house. The space measured approximately 10'x15'.

It's part of the owner's collection. They purchased it at a local antique fair in Sullivan County.

We had the general contractor hand paint the pine for a durable finish. The walls were done by spray painting. We also caulked the major seams to prevent cracking. In general, you should expect one visit in the first year to handle cracking from expansion/contracting of the material during the cycle of seasons.

Sarah, we utilized individual pieces of tongue and groove knotty pine salvaged from another section of the house. The panel was then painted to coordinate with a more standard wainscot located in an adjacent space. The same look can be achieved with a slightly narrower panel, and a 4" spacing should work for you. Best of luck.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Don’t feel the need to fill it up. Unless you have some huge gallery-like foyer, entry hall furnishings do not have to be elaborate. One piece of furniture, a light overhead and a few vases give this foyer a spartan, modern farmhouse look.
