After we painted the basement, M and I needed to put down baseboard trim. Most the of trim was going for $3 per linear foot, which was more than we wanted to pay seeing that we needed about 100 linear feet. While perusing Home Depot's lumber aisle, we came across 1"x4"x8' planks selling for $1.80 a piece (about $0.23 per foot). We bought a few planks, primed, painted, and nailed them in place. After nailing them in place, M caulked the gaps thus finishing the basement, for the most part.
