Dining Room Remodel traditional-dining-room

Dining Room Remodel

My family of four lives in this 1939 home in Live Oak, CA. It is approx. 4,000 sf with 3 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms and a sunroom in the center of the home. My inspiration for this remodel was 1930’s glam with all of the conveniences of modern day. Our dining room is highlighted in this photo album. Pictures taken by Melissa Laney.

Thanks so much. They put two standard moldings together to make a wider profile. I'm not sure what the profiles were that the carpenter used. We just kept playing with different moldings until we achieved the look we were after.

Thanks Melissa. Actually, we found a one-piece molding that accomplished the same effect.

Thanks so much for your feedback! The floors are #1 Common White Oak / 3-1/4" width. Sadly, I do not have the stain color handy.
