installing wall mouldings - HOW TO?

I need to replace wall mouldings and am not sure how to do this. I had flooding over the winter, so had to pull off the mouldings to peel back the carpet.

Now, I have to put them back. Some are intact, so just need to be put back to where they were before; others I need to buy.

Don't know how to do this - can some one out there email me instructions?

You just nail them to the wall framing with finishing nails, set the nailheads and putty the holes. Prime and paint the baseboard molding prior to installation, and then you'll only have to touchup the putty.
You can 45 the corners inside or out, if you want, but use a power miter saw or radial arm saw for accuracy.
Good luck!
