    I don’t really understand how you did this… “roll out a foot or two touching the carpet and going up a little over an inch of the baseboard. Then I take a smaller putty knife and push the top of the tape down between the baseboard”….? So you place the tape sticky side down and with the putty knife tuck about an inch or 2 under the base boards, so in between the carpet and base board? Wouldn’t that peel some paint off the board when you pull off the tape? Or am I not getting it? A video would be so much more helpful. Thanks!

    Packing tape sticky side down and about 1″ over the baseboard. Then use putty knife to tuck the 1″ of packing tape under the baseboard. This sounds great. We have to paint baseboards at some point and I’ll remember this.
