Installing Molding

The Martha Stewart Show

 

Martha gives actor John Leguizamo a lesson in basic home renovations and shows him how to properly paint a room. Part 1.

1. Measure length of wall where molding will be installed. Mark this length on the molding with a pencil.

2. Using a power saw, cut molding at pencil mark.

3. Dab wood glue along the back of the molding.

4. Hold molding in place at wall; using 1 1/4" nails, nail molding in place. Use a level, if necessary, to keep the molding straight during installation.

5. Use a nail set to neatly sink nails into molding.
