Removing baseboard from plaster walls - mud advice
From the bottom of the new flooring to the bottom of the lathe is about 5", then 6-1/4" to the bottom of the plaster. Then the plaster has chipping up to about 8", the heigh of the old baseboard.
My new baseboard is going to be 5.5", so you can see in the pic it will end up about halfway into the bottom lathe, leaving some wood and cracked plaster exposed that will need to be patched first.
What would you use for something like this? Would hot mud work, or maybe even all purpose light? I want to avoid getting another 8" high baseboard.
