Casing this entryway


Thought I'd update this with pictures.





I finished the other side of the entryway on Saturday and started painting the livingroom on Sunday. Here's what it looks like from that angle now:

plinthe blocks at the top and no base molding wrapping on the 'column' base???

just my opinion, but looks a little odd to me, but i guess it's your's and how you want it...

There may be base molding wrapping the column base after I replace all the baseboard in the livingroom. That's on-deck along with crown when the painting is finished.

I wasn't going to use the plinth blocks at all, just the rosettes, but my wife liked the way they looked up there, so did what the 'boss' said.

Looks good, think the moulding you've used for the plinth block should have been mitred all the way round so no 'end grain' is visible.

Dentil cornice like on this page looks pretty posh if anyone is doing something similar in a period property, think I might have a go at my place.

There's also a picture of a moulding that's been fitted in between the dado rail and skirting, to create the effect of wall panelling with ease. That would look good in the reveals if they're wide enough?

****, I wish my missus was happy with my work! MAybe if I got on and finished it...!
