Crown Molding Touch Up


i had my hardwood floors refinished and stained. we have white crown molding on the floor and it needs a little of touch up from the refinishing.

i have never painted in my life, and i don't know what's the technique to touching up white crown molding paint.

Find the exact can of paint used before, shake it up well, clean the baseboard well, let it dry. Go to paint store and buy a good brush,open paint can, dip brush into paint, brush offending spots.

If you haven't done much painting, you may want to put painters tape down on the floor along the baseboards, as well put your paint can on cardboard or something similar.

If there are any holes then fill and sand before painting, if there are any gaps between the wall and baseboards, caulking along the wall will improve the look of it.

Use small strokes and don't put a lot of paint on the brush or it'll drip all over the place.
