A while ago, we stripped/prepped some wood for our Craftsman trim. I was afraid it was going to take a while to get it installed, but we had a spurt of energy and got it done! We matched the trim style of the rest of the main floor, read more about that here.
Finished Office Trim:
As a reminder, before trim:
We were on a roll, so we put up the trim in the hallway too.
We also filled nail holes, caulked the joints and touched up the paint, which is a tedious and painstaking step of putting up trim.
It’s great to have this trim work done, but one thing I am disappointed in is the obvious sheen change where we filled the nail holes with wood putty – even after 2 coats of paint.
I’ve experienced this before and I knew that it was important to prime those areas before painting with the final coat. We used RedSeal paint/primer from Daly’s, so I thought I could get away with not priming those spots. But unfortunately I was wrong. Live and learn. The moral of the story: when in doubt, prime.
