Thanks for the tips! We did score the paint with a utility knife, so that hasn't been an issue. I didn't think about trying to locate a stud though, good idea!
I don't know anyone with a Fein MultiMaster (and I can't afford one myself), but I did just purchase Dremel's knockoff MultiMax. I know it probably won't work as well nor are the blades as strong, but I am hoping I can use it to cut through the nails even if it means replacing the blades a few times. Or, if that won't work, I will try cutting the molding into smaller sections so it will hopefully be easier to pry away from the wall.
