Prime first, install second, paint third. Be sure to have a drill ready, for
making pilot holes for the finishing nails, and practice on a piece of
scrap. Otherwise, have lots of Kleenex ready to dry your tears. Don't ask me
how I know this. The right size nail set is mandatory, too. If you cut the
pieces of moulding a bit tight, they may need to be tapped into place at the
corners, so a soft mallet is nice to have, or a regular hammer and a piece
of soft scrap wood or dowel to act as an intermediary. Sometimes you have to
bend long lengths of moulding in the middle to get them to pop into place.
That's interesting. :-)
