Baseboard moldings for wainscotting

Posted by Donna on September 8th, 2000 04:53 PM

I recently removed carpet to expose oak parquet flooring in my old house (approx. 100 yo)Now there is a gap between the walls and the floor due to the difference in depth of the old plaster walls and the newer drywall. I have replaced all the moldings in the living room and added new baseboards and quarter round to make up the gap. In the dining room I have tongue and grooved wainscotting and the existing baseboard is beaveled, not allowing the placement of quarter round to conceal the gap. (The rounded edges do not allow for the flat surface of the qtr round). Any suggestions (aside from replacing all the existing molding on the wainscotting? I also have to take into consideration the groove in the existing baseboard that holds up the tongue and grooved wainscot panels. The gap varies from 1/2 inch to 2 inches around the room.
