Caulking Tutorial

Caulking is one of those things when working on a house project that might seem unnecessary or even a little daunting to do. It can get messy really quickly and when you are at the end of a project, you kind of just want to be done and don't really want one more thing to do. Caulking can totally change up a space though and give it a finished look whether it's baseboards, trim, moulding, staircase, shiplap, board and batten, etc. It's also great on bathroom projects and outdoor projects. I'm going to show you how to caulk baseboards and this is the easiest way I have found to do it. With just a little practice, you'll be a pro in no time! 

Supplies Needed:

Caulk - This is the kind I use the most. I prefer white over clear because it's easier to see what you are doing. You need to make sure that it is paintable. 

Caulking Gun 

Spray Bottle 

Old Rags - You'll need to get them wet

Scissors To Cut The Tip Off Tube Of Caulk

Start by prepping your area, make sure to wipe everything down so there is no dirt or dust. Then you are going to load your tube of caulk into the caulking gun and tighten it until it's locked in.

Once the tube is loaded, you can cut the tip off the tube - you will want to cut as small of a hole as possible and make sure to cut it at an angle. The bigger the hole, the more caulk will come out which can result in a big mess! You can always cut the hole a little bigger if you need more, but it's best to start out small. 

 

When your tube is ready to go, you simply push down the handle and run the tip along the edge of the baseboard where the baseboard meets the wall. You can do as little or as much at one time that you'd like. I usually do about 10-15 inches before I stop and do the next step. 

 

Grab your spray bottle and squirt the line of caulk that you just laid down and then run your finger over the line to remove any excess. Take your wet rag and run the rag over the line to smooth it out and to dry up any water. Wipe your finger on a different wet rag and move onto caulking the next line. I like to keep one rag to wipe my finger and one rag to smooth and wipe the area I'm working on. 

You can start the next line right where you left off and once you follow the steps above it will all blend in seamlessly. 

These baseboards that I'm working on will need a coat of paint after I finish caulking, but depending on your project this could be your very last step and you could be done. Check out the before and after below - such big difference! 

I've had quite a few people reach out and ask me about caulking so hopefully this tutorial helps! Shoot me an email or DM if you have any questions. For more links of our favorite products that we love, check out our Amazon page.

  • what a wonderful world we are living in, i still doubt this spell caster how he did it!!! I am so happy to let the whole world know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage.Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn’t help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it became. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr.oku, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of women he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislikes every other woman on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone.The spell caster’s contact is okutemple@gmail.com you can also contact him on whatsapp +2347053113465
