kitchen with blue walls and diy wainscoting

Wainscoting, pilasters and picture rail molding installed on the kitchen brick wall.

[This is part of Our Kitchen Molding Makeover series.]

We had company this last week, so it was a good time to clear the kitchen and living room of molding materials and tools.

We still have to install:

  1. Pedestals for the pilasters
  2. Bed molding under the wainscoting cap
  3. Baseboard

We really like how it’s turning out, though I’m miffed at myself for making a few mistakes with the pilaster base proportions.  Mistakes that would require me to tear the wainscoting cap out and start over.  And I’m just not going to do that, so I’ll have to live with my mistake.
