Crown molding in the kitchen

This is the kitchen before. I only painted to where the molding would go so you can see the jagged paint line.

The other side.

Our work area. I got the waterproof already painted not real wood stuff from Home Depot. It was $1.21 a foot and I liked that it didn't have to be painted. Cost a total of $127. We wasted a lot trying to figure out the cuts. We rented the nail gun and compressor from Home Depot for $62 and 2inch nails for $14 rental was for 24hrs. Total Kitchen crown molding done for $203

This is the garage door and laundry room area. We started at 11:00 and this was the first area to try out. At 12:45 he was done with this square. It was a lot of putting up and taking done.
This is how it got done. It took 5 hrs to do and 1 hour to clean up. My husband spent around 10 mins on each cut. He was thinking it through.

Then there was the edges that had to be capped off because it lead into a room we are not going to put up molding. The math in this is very hard so it can be done at home if you have a miter saw and understand stuff that I just don't.
This is the cap piece. There are websites to explain the cuts. My husband just googled how to cut crown molding and followed the steps. He has not done this before.
All done.
Now this involves a lot of caulk.

One step closer to the kitchen being completely done.
