Removed carpet down to hard wood, quarteround needed?
My husband and I just removed our carpet down ot orignial (and beautiful) hardwood lfoors. The floors are in perfect condition, still shiny after being covered probably more than 30 years by previous owners.
The only problem is there is a gap between where we removed the carpet tacks and the baseboards that appears unfinished. I'm assuming quarter round was once in place. I have no problems with putting quarter round back down, but what do you do about the quaterround when it comes to the door frames. The baseboards aren't flush to the door frames, but any quarter round is obviously going to protrude farther than the door frames. Is this acceptable? If so, how do you "finish" the edges showing so they don't just look like blunt edges hanging out there?
Replacing the door frames or base boards just isn't an option for me financially...
