The weekend before this past weekend, I started putting up panel boards behind the couch.
I didn’t finish because I was having problem with this outer corner. This past weekend, I went ahead and just finished it. I used caulk to fix up the problem areas.
The problem was that the corner edge and the baseboard was not a perfect ninety degree angle. I had to decide if I wanted my panels flushed against the corner edge or flush against the baseboard. Since I didn’t want to cut the panel boards length-wise at an angle, I decided to make it flush against the corner edge and just caulk the gap between the baseboard an the panels. I didn’t realize how big that gap was going to be while keeping the top of the baseboard leveled. Throughout the process, I kept trying to correct problems that kept arising which ended up causing a bigger problem with the corner trim at the end. After much head pounding by KT to try and figure out a perfect cut, we just threw our hands up and decided to caulk the gap at the corner. It doesn’t look bad. I think after I paint it, it shouldn’t be noticeable. I caulked all the seams once already but I want to go over it one more time before we paint. It was a slow weekend but this will get done.
I can’t believe the weekend is over already. It feels way too short. It’s going to be a long week. Lets make the best of it.
