adding baseboard

The new boy bedroom is starting to take shape. The boys will actually be sleeping in their new beds tonight! So exciting. Everyone has been working away and giving their all to make this room a reality.

Late last night we added the baseboards and base shoe (a.k.a. quarter round). It’s all installed but the real work begins after installation (IMO) when it comes to baseboards. They will still need to be painted, the nail holes have to be filled filled then lightly sanded, caulked and repainted… soooooo much work. So much detailed work. But enough complaining, here is where we last night right around bed time.

These pictures are super yellowish, the room looks like it has a bad case of jaundice! Like I said, it was late so there was no natural light. Here is the handy hubby installing the new baseboards and quarter round (try not to sneak a peak at that plumber crack!! lol).

Just looking at these photos makes me cringe, I really dislike caulking and painting baseboards and quarter round… boo-hoo… I’m just being a lazy butt!  Once it’s all done it will be well worth it. Finished baseboards really add that professional touch to a finished room. I love the way baseboards complete a room/house. Yes, I am a baseboard snob. I would notice your baseboards if you had me over!!

And… {drum roll please} here is
