Paint Baseboard or Wall First?
Do you paint baseboards or wall first? The answer is you paint the wall first. The method of what to
paint first in regards to walls and baseboards is a highly debated practice in the painting community. The
strongest argument for painting the baseboards last is that the baseboards make up a very small
amount of surface area. Painting interior walls is a big job, so this increases the chances of getting paint
on the baseboards. Getting paint off from the baseboards is a small easy fix.
