Dining Room Remodel traditional dining room

Dining Room Remodel

My family of four lives in this 1939 home in Live Oak, CA. It is believed that William Wurster designed the house and Thomas Church designed the landscaping. 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.

I love this ceiling too. How did you attach /do the crown molding? Is it one or two pieces? I am building a house and did this ceiling in my master. I love the simplicity of it.

These are two moldings stacked together. The bottom of the top piece was brad nailed to the walls so the top of the molding actually sticks out from the ceiling (unattached).

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.
