Molding at tread rise junction
I just painted my risers and treads. Risers white treads tan. I want to put a
plastic piece of decorative molding at each tread/riser
junction. I do not want to brad/nail it in too much trouble it's a tiny piece of molding not quarter round but flatter hard to nail into and then deal with holes.

I was thinking of hot gluing them down (probably not a good idea right?) so what would you suggest to sticking them down?

They are a super flexible light weight plastic from HD colored white which I want. Looks good to make the transition from tan tread to white riser look cleaner (paint line is covered up)

In general, moldings on stairs tend to get beat up, kicked, etc. Probably not a good enviornment for decorative trim. I would stick with quarter rnd or shoe molding.

I'm with "Just Bill" here. Use shoe molding, pre-paint it and ask around with your friends to see if anyone has a brad nailer pneumatic airgun. It's easy this way. Fill the holes with white caulk or spackling.
