It pains me to admit, but this project was one of the first we put on the list for beautifying the living room: crown moulding. We finally had it installed, and now we're leaving. Lesson learned - next time we'll DO those things on the To Do List.
It still needs patching and painting, and then we're having the walls painted, so it will look even better. For someone else to enjoy. (No, I'm not bitter. Not at all.)
