Alex cut and dry fit the trim. It’s currently being painted.
We’re still aiming to get it done by Thanksgiving (T-Minus 7 Days). We’re also hoping to clean the carpet in the family room and thinking about getting a pet gate at the new doorway to help preserve our soon-to-be-clean carpet. We’ll see.
PS. The Home Depot guy was right. The secret to a nice paint finish on trim is Flotral and the most expensive paint brush you can get (The Purdy).
