I wanted to give our bedroom a more "finished" look so I decided crown molding would be a good addition. Wood molding was going to be a PIA to deal with so I sought out some more DIY options. SoSimple sells affordable, high-density foam moldings over the interwebs.

Here's a before shot of the room. The paint is a super light pink so it's hard to get a shot that shows the contrast of the trim.
And after...

It looks ok in these shots but we really didn't do the best job of installing it. The house has popcorn ceilings througout (gross) and the trim doesn't lay totally flush on the ceiling so it was hard to line up all the pieces. We also made a couple of small errors in measuring so we have a few seams that are larger than they should be. I am going to get some white wood filler and paint and hopefully the seams won't be as visible.

Great mirror above your bed!

If you get the itch to tackle those ceilings, it's not too hard. (I wrote about it here: ) Or, for around a grand, you can pay someone to scrape or float them for you.
