Trim Windows and Doors

Determine dimensions for window trim pieces using measuring tape (Image 1). Referring to measurements, mark 8-foot long planks of 1x3 pine to size with pencil. Cut each piece of trim with a circular saw, mitering corners at a 45-degree angle (Image 2). Starting along the bottom, attach each piece of trim with nail gun, ensuring a tight fit along each mitered corner (Images 3 and 4).

Measure, Cut and Install Baseboards

Cover windows with kraft paper and painter's tape to avoid overspray. Use HVLP paint sprayer to add even coats of primer then semigloss paint to all beadboard and trim surfaces, allowing at least one hour dry time between coats (Images 1 and 2).
