Painting Baseboards with Carpet

The one big issue with painting baseboards above carpet is that carpet is cushioned and sicks a little
above the baseboard line. You can counter the cushion of the carpet extending into the baseboards with
masking tape. Place masking tape on the carpet along the baseboards. After you have done this, press
down along the tape with a flat hard object. This will flatten the carpet along the baseboards. A good
quality masking tape will hold the carpet down during your baseboard painting job.
