Slick design for installation – very nice. What paint and application technique did you use?

Thanks – I actually used the Behr paint + primer. 1 coat, light sand with 320 and then 2nd coat. The easiest thing I’ve ever finished!

I’ve been waiting for a built-on project like this to come along, and by “like this” I mean a built-in on top of carpet. My big question is, What do you do with the carpet? Did you trim it and put down a new edge strip, or just go on top of it, or something else?

I just sit it right on the carpet, stuck a level on it and shimmed it in a few places, then reattached the baseboard just like attaching it to the wall. Looks like it has been there all along.

That is a beautiful piece of work. Very nicely done.
