    You will need a good quality miter chop saw on a bench, measuring tape, pencil and coping saw. It's easiest to use a finish nailer, but you can simply use a hammer, finish nails and a nail set to do the same thing. A speed square is also handy. Then of course you need your lengths of trim. To remove old baseboard, a small cat's claw is helpful.

    Hello User, you can paint the current baseboards, it is pretty easy to mask with frog tape and paint, just ensure you have cleaned the baseboards thoroughly. Or you could replace the old ones with rubber style baseboards, but not so easy to remove as they glue on. I would suggest paint the old ones, you can do a basic white or any color you want to compliment your decor with.
