In one day, thanks to borrowing a friend’s air nailer, Scott has managed to nail shoe moulding around most of the downstairs flooring.
Much of it was in long strips. Look at him go :)
But there are a few areas, like around the stairs, where we had to get a little creative.
The benefit of using an air nailer isn’t just its speed; it also forces the nail further into the moulding, which means there are no nail heads to paint over. Instead, I just need to fill the holes with either wood putty or caulk, giving the entire look a much smoother finish. Once I have the time (and patience, it’s a lot of moulding!), I’ll spend a few hours filling in any of the gaps.
But even if I don’t get to it for a while, the addition of shoe moulding makes the floor look that much better, don’t you think?
