Supplies and Tools:

Existing wood molding
MDF molding 

Mrs. Dee wanted to upgrade her bedroom/office. She wanted the bedroom wall fixed, new baseboards to replace the missing ones, new ceiling and walls painted and she needed this job done as fast as possible. Her new tenet would arrive in three days.

This post thirteen steps to replace the missing moldings on the bedroom.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows that the wood molding from the wall was held by two nails.  
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the wood molding needs to be measured and will be replaced by the new MDF molding.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the wood molding, now removed from the wall. The molding was placed on the compound saw and the miter blade was set to 45 degree cut and on the Delta© compound miter saw. If you are not sure use a level to make sure the cut is correct. Use a wood block to bring up the molding so it can be cut correctly otherwise the cut will be the correct vertical cut.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows that if the molding is not leveled horizontally, the cut will not be correct. Notice how the back side of the molding is on the cement and the front side is on the saw. To cut the molding correctly, both sides need be be leveled.

Below Fig.5 shows the use of a wood level that can be used to level the molding.

Step 5: Fig.6 shows the wood molding is cut at a 45 degree angle, ready for the next piece to be added.

Step 6: Fig.7 shows the new MDF molding cut to fit the area. The 45 degree cut is the industry standard to add more molding to existing molding.

Step 7: Fig.8 shows the old wood molding is going to be nailed into the wall using a air compressed brad nailer.

Step 8: Fig.9 shows that after the primed molding has been cut and mitered on both sides than the piece needs to be place to see if it is the correct fit. Here slightly too large need to cut off 1/16 of an inch.

Step 9: Fig.10 shows an air compressor with a 25-ft compressed air hose that will be used to provide the air power for the brad nailer. The air pushes the brad into place.
