Chris and Lauren Pippin share their neat cul-de-sac home with their daughters Charlotte Ann and Chloe. The family has lived there for 12 years, but a few months ago a heavy rainstorm caused flooding in their home.

The Pippins made the best of an unfortunate situation and replaced the damaged floors. However, some of the baseboards and other moldings were mismatched or missing altogether. Plus, the living room stood out with painted paneling.

To make the rest of the living area look as good as the new floors, we helped Chris and Lauren disguise the old paneling and gave the space a molding makeover.

    Missed your tip for cleaning shower stall. Could you give me the product name. Thanks for great shows!

    End results looked great as usual. I am kind of surprised you didn’t just cover the paneling with 1/4 drywall to minimize the joint-filling labor and dust.

    Mudding the grooves in the paneling is a great idea that I plan to try. How would you go about mudding an outside corner on the paneling wall?

    Dear Sir. I just watched your show with Chris & Lauren. Wonderful new look. Just I would say go back & put in new gutter’s for them . As the flooding comes from where the two corners meet. The water runs off the roof so fast at that section. & runs close to the foundation, When you put the gutter’s up the water won’t be going right straight down. I know as I had water get into my home. Once I put in new gutter’s , All was well. If you go back & watch at the end of this show. It will show all that water from the roof .

    Do you have any pictures of the German Smear technique used on the old brick behind a wood burner?
