How to Paint Baseboards - The Kreative LifeLately I’ve been in a repair and renew type of mode around the house.

I changed all of the fire alarms, replaced weather strips on my doors, organized my garage, and even cleaned all of the tile grout on my first floor by hand.

Every little thing that I can think of has been taken care of.

I know some people may find this work tiresome, but I like to look at it another way. It’s good exercise and I can be alone because the kids won’t bug me about something or another every couple of minutes.

I just put on my headphones and get to work. Another project I recently tackled was painting the baseboards on my first floor.

If you want to know how to paint baseboards with FrogTape® brand painter’s tape, then I’m going to give you a few tips to make the task painless. Enjoy!

How To Paint Baseboards

Step 1

Remove all dirt and grime from the baseboards. I used soap, hot water, and an old rag.

Let the baseboards completely dry. How to Paint Baseboards - The Kreative Life

Step 2

Apply FrogTape® Multi-Surface with PaintBlock technology to the wall just above the top of the baseboard and to the floor where the baseboard meets the floor.

*Make sure you test before you, per the instructions on the back of the tape container. Also, follow any suggestions given for applying on textured surfaces. How to Paint Baseboards - The Kreative Life FrogTape 3

Step 3

Use paint of desired color and paint brush to apply long even strokes to baseboard.

It’s ok if paint gets on the tape because the PaintBlock technology will allow for clean lines and won’t let the paint bleed through.

Step 4

While paint is still wet, remove it from the wall and floor.

Some paint tapes say you have to wait for the paint to dry, but not if you’re using FrogTape® Multi-Surface. How to Paint Baseboards - The Kreative Life

Step 5

Allow paint to dry. Enjoy your beautifully renewed baseboards. How to Paint Baseboards - The Kreative Life
