As if an ugly stain wasn't enough, this poor slice of baseboard got all dripped on by myself, way back when I didn't even know to to edge without one of those horrible plastic slider things.
Believe it or not, Hubs and I actually applied the lighter stain and declared it good. Oh, we were such DIY punks in 2009.
Again, we applied the lighter stain and felt OK with that. We must have been drunk.
We decided to pull up the quarter-round and replace it because trying to paint around it seemed like a lot more work than making a few cuts and spending $20 at Menards.
After two coats of primer and three of paint (and two meatball subs and one costume change), we had afters that we could finally be proud of!
The whole shebang.
How bright and happy!
Seriously, I spent the better part of the next day just staring at the match-y-ness of this section.
What was your final DIY of 2011?
