By Mark J. Donovan
In this video Mark Donovan of http://homeadditionplus.com shows how to reinstall old baseboard trim onto the walls of his master bedroom after having new wood flooring installed.
If you carefully remove old baseboard trim you can reuse it, saving yourself in the process lots of time and money. In this video, I explain and show how to properly reinstall the baseboard trim in my master bedroom such that it looks as good as new.
For the top accent trim pieces I am using 1-1/2 inch finish nails. I am fastening the top accent trim piece to the 1×6 baseboard piece and the wall stud. Note that on the accent piece I am firing the nails into it at a 45 degree angle.
After nailing all of the old baseboard trim pieces to the walls, I then caulk all of the nail holes and seams. I also caulk the top seam, along the wall and top edge of the accent trim piece.
Lastly, I went back and quickly repainted over the old baseboard trim to cover the caulk.
