if your name is Ashley, and if you blog under the name of Adaruts,and if you left me a comment yesterday, please send me pics of your wall issues to manditremayne (at) gmail, okey dokey?
So I've wanted to do this itty bitty upgrade for a while--
behold my front door that photographs extremely poorly. Also, it would have helped to have cleaned the floor. Gosh you expect too much from me.
So here's what I'm thinking--
the fluting around the door needs some of these bad boys.
You've seen these little wood blocks you can buy to beef up a door frame?
Well I figured cutting up a scrap of my "frown" material is just as good.
Don't you think? Just nod your head.
And while we're at it, the baseboard at the entryway needs to a quick pimping, similar to what was done in the living room.
I had a couple questions about this, so let's chat. I'll be brief. You be boxers.
For this baseboard beef up, I used shoe moulding.
I cannot explain why I chose this at the time. It could have been any small-ish strip of moulding. Shoe is kinda too beefy-- I left my brain in my other pants that day.
But ya know. It's cheap and it works 'n stuff.
See? Two nails with the nailgun and we're in business. I might have photoshopped out dirty floor spots. Just a couple. Couple hundred. Ew I should have kept going.
See it in action?

Yep. It's as simple as it looks. Pick something that you can use as a quick guide for the height you want to raise your base, and start nailing away.
I'm totally laughing at this before and after business.
Even I can barely tell, bwahahaha. But it was worth the 10 minutes it took, people. Even hauling in the air compressor, it was worth it.
