It doesn't look like traditional wainscotting with stiles and rails. It looks like the molding was just applied to the walls.
You would do the same thing. You could just mock it up on the floor with painter's tape and lay out the cut pieces as they would go on the wall. When your happy with the layout, nail it to the wall.

thats a pretty simple job, get 1 5/8 base cap moulding and chair rail,lay out the boxes evenly and nail away.

post your location and maybe someone local can be of help.

you can rent a aircompressor and a nailer at home depot or lowes, 16 or 18 gauge finish nails, and get some caulk in case youre walls are not even,(no not use the caulk for filling nail holes,use spackle or painters putty.

This is the secret of making the molding stick to just about anything. Don't even need nails.

HD or Lowes have some pretty good books on trim that will show you how this is done.

how to do this moulding work


use liquid nails along with an air compressor finishing nails.

Little trick. All the legs will be the exact same ( unless youre going under stairs ect.)so you can pre cut them all at once. The box tops and bottoms will change but also can all be cut for each section when you figure out the number.
Its not too hard to do and kinda fun for beginners. Fill the nails and then latex caulk all the seams. Enjoy it.

I lived in Liverpool for a few years, my dad's been there for 30 years.

I've always referred to waincoting of this type as "shadow boxes". Here are some drawings I did for someone on here awhile back that might help...
