Supplies and Tools:

Clear latex caulking
Clean rags 
Ryobi Battery Caulking Gun

Mrs. Dee wanted to upgrade her bedroom/office and she needed a few repairs in the bedroom.  Her new tenet would arrive in three days.

This post shows the nine steps to caulking the new baseboard moldings.

Step 1: Fig.1 and fig.2 shows the baseboards are not caulked, see the gap between the wall and the moldings. Caulked baseboards protect you from bugs that find molding a nice meal and home. Caulking gives the home molding a clean look.
