By Lainie Eilenberger, Real Estate Agent for Key and Slate Real Estate Group

Are you tired of looking at dingy, scuffed-up baseboard trim in your home? Do you want to add a touch of fresh paint to make it look brand new again? Well, y'all are in luck because today I'm gonna share with you my favorite tips and tricks for painting baseboard trim like a pro!

Now, y'all might be thinking, "But Lainie, painting baseboard trim sounds like a big ol' mess!" Don't you worry, I'm gonna show you how to do it easily and quickly, without making a mess.

First things first, you'll need to gather your supplies. You'll need a paintbrush, a small roller, painter's tape, a drop cloth, and, of course, some paint in the color of your choice. Now, let's get started!

Step 1: Prep Your Space

Before you start painting, you'll need to prepare your space. Lay down a drop cloth to protect your flooring from any stray drips of paint. Then, use painter's tape to tape off any areas you don't want to get paint on, like the wall above the baseboard or any nearby furniture.

Step 2: Clean your baseboards

Before you start painting, make sure your baseboards are clean and free of dust and grime. You can use a damp cloth or a little bit of soap and water to wipe them down. This will ensure that the paint adheres properly and gives you a smooth finish.

Step 3: Paint the Baseboard

Once your space is prepped, it's time to start painting. Use your paintbrush to carefully paint the baseboard trim, taking care not to get paint on the wall or nearby furniture. For any hard-to-reach areas or corners, use a small roller to make sure you get complete coverage.

Step 4: Let it Dry

After you've finished painting, it's important to let it dry completely before you remove the painter's tape or touch it. Otherwise, you might accidentally smudge the fresh paint and have to start all over again.

And there you have it, y'all! Painting your baseboard trim is a quick and easy way to freshen up your home and add value to your property. Plus, it's a great way to show potential home buyers that you've taken care of your home and kept it looking its best.
