Do you have shoe molding at your baseboards? That little strip of wood that covers the space between the floor and the baseboard?
I do. And when it was re-installed after we had our floors refinished, it was left the original stain that matched the floors. See first picture below.
But, I think since it is molding and not flooring that it should match the molding, don't you? So today I started painting it....
In the picture below you can see how it looks in one area that is finished (3 coats later).
Much better! It makes the baseboard molding look more substantial too.
