Paint or Stain Trim
My house is a 1940s bungalow and the original trim is stained a dark reddish mahogany. The base boards especially are looking very worn and dirty from years of prior shellac buildup. I have removed the baseboards in the hall to rip out carpet and replace wth new flooring and some have boards have cracked/split from age. Should I purchase and paint new baseboards white, glue the old ones back together and refinish. If I put up new baseboard, I will need to do something about the rest of the trim — what do I do?
