Trying to match moldings in 1920's house...sources
My husband and I are currently reparing walls and moldings in our 1920's bungalow/mini Colonial in Massachusetts. We have had a lot of trouble stripping the woodwork in order to restore it or repaint it. We need to replace at least some of it. I'd like to keep to the original character, and see if I can match the molding. Before talking to a woodworker to have it custom milled, I would like to see if we can purchase it. HD doesn't have it at all. Does anyone have any online sources they could recommend?
If posting a picture will help, I will try to take on in the next day or so. (My camera is acting up a bit, sorry!) In the meantime, the current molding is about 4" wide. It has a 2" recessed panel in the center, with a 1/2" ridge on either side, and a 1" panel on the outer edge. I have found "belly band" molding, and it sort of looks like that, but the center panel is flat instead of rounded.
Thanks in advance for any advice you may be able to offer!
