    Hi

    Buy the appropiate molding at a Hardware store. You will also need a level a tube of construction finishing nails adhesive and a stud finder. After deciding on the height you want mark with a pencil a horizontal line around the room. Use stud finder to locate all the studs. Start at one doorway measure along the wall the length to the nearest corner. Cut off the molding to length at a 45 deg bevel allow an extra 3 or 4 mm. Hold in place check for length trim to length if required. Put a bead of adhesive on the center back of the moulding push into place Nail at first stud with one finishing nail then at the other end stud checking for level after which finish nails at each stud. Repeat the process along each wall to you go all around and back to the doorway. Always cut first cut slightly long then adjust (the waste is minimal) and you do not have gaps to fill in). The finishing nails hold it in place until the construction adhesive sets. Good luck

    If you do decide to do it, my recommendation is to paint or finish the wood BEFORE you put it up. It will be a lot easier.
