How to Paint Laundry Room Wood Floor Baseboard

painting tape
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Blue painting tape
Kilz® primer
White enamel paint
1-inch brush

George Applecart noticed my internet ad and asked us to visit San Diego, California. He paid for our little trip to this beautiful resort area. George live in Chula Vista near the Mexican boarder. He had a laundry room that had an unpainted floor molding and needed to be painted the same color.

This post shows the four steps of painting a laundry room floor molding.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the pictures shown were the blue tape was applied on the floor and the top of the back molding.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows blue tape is being applied near the dryer vent pipe.

Step 3: Fig.3
and fig.4 shows that the painters tape has been applied and the area is ready to be primed.

Step 4: Fig.5 and fig.6 shows the wood using a 1-inch brush. After the area dried, I applied two coats of white enamel paint to the unpainted wood areas. Next, I removed the blue tape and the job was finished. Now the area looks like it should with no differences in color.
