Yeah I thought about that but if I place a spacer behind the existing base, the outside corners will not meet as the spacers are creating a larger surface area. Am I correct in saying that? What's the best way around that?
Then again, that will cause the baseboard to extend out much farther than the door trim too. The more I think about it, I may have to remove the baseboard, it just seems like waste of base that's still in good shape!!
Thanks again for the suggestions guys. I obviously have a lot to learn/read up on as far as the uses of naphtha, and a whole lot of other commonly used chemicals for finishing. Starting from scratch on all this info is a steep learning curve.
