Dining Room Decorative Molding Design

Project by Mark posted 09-26-2012 02:58 AM 4340 views 3 times favorited 6 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Have had a dining room trim work design project on tap for quite a while now, and I finally just got into the heart of it. I really love shadow boxes, and while I’ve done several in my home (some on stairs which were really tricky with the angle-cuts), and I thought I’d try to take things to an even more comprehensive level this time.

My design will include fluted casings, crown moldings, chair rail – and two sets of shadow boxes: one high and another low. When complete, I’m also going to try to do a faux finish within the shadow boxes (have never attempted that before), and I’ll finish everything else in a high-end semigloss. I think I’ll even then finish the room off with a hardwood floor.

It’s coming along nicely now – but still has a way to go. You can see some of the progress in the attached pictures, and there are more photos (and even a design video I shot a couple of days ago) on my website if anyone wants to see more on this at the following link:


I genuinely love the look of trim work – all of it. Plus, I find there’s something particularly gratifying about doing this type of work. You can be incredibly precise, completely creative – and still have all the fun of using some great power tools. I definitely love my nail gun… ;-)

Even though this isn’t finished – the room was nothing more than an empty box before. And I’m planning to do some nice color contrasts when I take this just a little further. We’re getting there…

Beautiful walls. This type of work just isn’t easy. Getting it to come out just right takes lots of patience. Nice.

This is coming very nice!
Clever little gizmo in the corner, saving you from having to make a mitre.

Craftsman – Thank you so much; it’s definitely true this takes so much time. But what’s great about it is that it lasts for years and years. So, it’s just gotta be done just so, right? BTW – on a completely different topic, after seeing a couple of your videos several months ago – you helped inspire me. I’ve recently started getting some of my own done too; they’re really fun to do – and I’m starting to get a handle on it. Like yourself, I’ve been (and am) a teacher as well – so talking is no issue, though I was a little camera shy at first.

PaBull – SPOT ON! It’s funny, I just left a comment elsewhere where someone mentioned how nice the corner blocks looked, and I “confessed” that I actually tried them for the first time with this project as I wanted to see if I could avoid those compound miter cuts up on the crown molding. Those gizmos DEFINITELY made it all much easier… and, I have to say, I do think they do look pretty cool too! :-)

Nicely done Mark. Thanks for showing me how good those corner blocks look. Can’t wait to see the finished room. Keep us posted please!

You can call me “Bald Fiddler” so we don’t get confused with one another. ;)
