Renovation Upstairs

The work upstairs continues slowly.  I'm taking the paint off the baseboards, it's a big job.  Everything else looks clean and new, so I just couldn't leave them with 47 coats of paint.

Need to tackle the trim on the windows too.  Since the drywall is thinner than the plastic, some shims will be necessary to get the trim back on level.
I find it interesting that the original baseboard finish was a faux woodgrain.  The wood itself is not hardwood, but they added this effect.  The base colour is the honey tone, with the darker overlay with a varnish type material.  Then lines have been dragged in to give the grain effect.

Some of the doors in other parts of the house were finished like this too, under several layers of paint.
