The trim, baseboards & picture molding in my home are flush with the walls in some places. We pulled the baseboards & some trim out of one room and we could see the layers of plaster, wallpaper, plaster, and maybe some drywall. This makes it really tough to paint - the plaster is jagged around some trim, the trim is actually recessed into the plaster in places, and it just looks like a mess. You can't tape anything off to paint because you can barely tell where the wall ends and the trim begins. Does anyone else have this problem? Why would anyone keep adding layers of wall to a room? Does anyone have a creative solution short of replacing all trim or tearing out the plaster & drywalling? Some of the worst places are in the turret of the house, in the curve. It makes for a very unpleasant painting experience.
