Mrs. Dee wanted to upgrade her bedroom wall fixed, new baseboards needed to be replaced and her new tenet would arrive in three days.

This post the six steps to finishing the installing of the MDF molding into the bedroom/office.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the wall being measured. This is the window wall, it has one piece of molding in  the middle and missing both ends. Below this end is on the left side near the A/C vent. One side of the molding will be at zero degrees and the other side will be at 45 degrees. The existing molding had to be removed and cut twice on each side to match the new MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) molding.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows a compound saw cutting the first 45 degree cut to match the new molding on the right side of the room.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows a compound saw cut for the zero degree cut, notice the pencil mark showing where to cut a 1/16 of an inch too long. This piece of molding will complete the right side.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows the first piece of molding is in place and settled into the corner. Notice the black marks on the top and bottom of both pieces. Each molding was shot with a brad nailer to hold it against the wall. Later the molding will be caulked to smooth out the molding and keep it more secured against the wall.
