Dining Room Makeover ( Click to enlarge any picture)

The walls of the 27’ dining room were stripped of wallpaper and then were skim coated and primed. The crown was constructed in three parts, two profiles I produced in my shop and one that was special ordered. The scale of the old corner cabinets seemed wrong for the room and the soon to be added crown molding. I removed the pediment and old pilasters and made new, wider pilasters with a larger beading profile. I raise them eight inches and added plinth blocks to the base and made a panel to extend the top to the ceiling.

  1. Very nice idea on raising the cabinet to the ceiling. The original scale definately looked off like you thought.
