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.

Master Bedroom Make Over

This is our bedroom (before). We changed out the chandelier when we moved in but we love the painted ceiling and the wall color. But now we want some wall molding done in this area.

We picked a pattern to try using 4ft long by 1.5 inch wide wood. It is in the molding area at Home Depot. We cut the wood into 7, 10, and 13 inch pieces.
Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.

In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
