Baseboard Painting Hack
Have you decided to tackle painting the wood trim in your house? Are you tired of taping off the floor? Me too! I decided that my 90s orange colored baseboards needed an update, but quickly realized that taping off the floor is a sloooowwww process. Here is a hack that might help you: use a piece of cardboard instead of tape!
If you have a little bit of give between the bottom of your baseboard and your flooring, this will save you some time. I have not tried this yet with carpet, but it worked beautifully with my tile and wood flooring. The thickness of the cardboard you need will depend on how much of a gap there is in between your flooring and the baseboard. I tried using the flap of a cardboard box, but it was too thick. Cutting off one side of a case of soda box worked perfectly.
As you paint, slide the cardboard underneath the baseboard. Paint the area, remove the cardboard and give the edge a wipe to get any excess paint off. Repeat as you work your way around the room. It’s that easy!
