I want to shiplap my entry wall about 3/4 the way up with a picture ledge and coat hooks. I’ve wanted to do this for 2 years now. Looking at different products, pictures, drawing it out, running it over in my head again and again. The 2 things that keep scaring me are the baseboards and the one outlet on the wall. I’m terrified to attempted to pull out the baseboards fearing I’ll mess something up but I’m not sure about the look of starting on top of them. The wall outlet! Going around it is not my concern it’s getting the outlet back out flush with the newly installed shiplap. Any tips, confidence boosters, anything you’ve got from your own experiences are greatly appreciated.
