Step 1:

Lay down the drop cloth to protect floors; remove existing baseboard; wipe wall with clean, damp cloth to prepare painting surface.



Step 2:

Using the tape measure, determine height for the top trim board by measuring up from the floor and lightly marking with a pencil; use the level and pencil to draw a horizontal line the length of the wall.



Step 3: 

Affix painter's tape just above the horizontal line and any adjacent walls; apply pressure to tape to ensure tight seal with the wall.



Step 4:

Using the angled brush, apply paint just inside taped areas, then paint the remaining area with the woven roller; remove painter's tape while paint is still damp; allow paint to dry 24 hours.



Step 5: 

Prep wooden boards by lightly sanding any rough surfaces; wipe with clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris.



Step 6:

Using the angled brush, paint all sides of each board; allow paint to dry completely.



Step 7: 

Install baseboard to wall by inserting finishing nails with the hammer along the studs.
Tip: Use a stud finder to locate studs. If you don't have a stud finder, know that most light switches and outlets are attached to a stud, which are typically spaced 16 inches apart.



Step 8:

Install vertical boards along studs by aligning bottom of board flush with the baseboard; secure to the wall with finishing nails and hammer.



Step 9: 

Install top horizontal board flush with the vertical boards; insert finishing nails along the studs.



Step 10:

Use latex caulk to fill in all nail holes and gaps; use the clean, damp cloth to smooth caulked surfaces and allow to dry.
