Guest Room Crown Moulding

The next room on my list to get the crown treatment is the guest room.  Waaaaay back 4 years ago when I first redecorated that room, I painted it 'Stormy Coast', which I still love.  However, I wasn't very good at edging by hand, so I taped the ceiling where it meets the walls.  When I took the tape off, it pulled off pieces of ceiling :(  So it looked terrible...Plus it started to have the drywall tape issue I mentioned in a previous post.

Crowning myself Queen

I've had a bee in my bonnet for a while now about installing crown moulding in all the upstairs bathrooms (2) and bedrooms (4).  Mainly this is a laziness issue, but I also really like crown and our first floor has it, so why not the second??

Because this house is almost 20 years old the drywall tape is starting to separate a bit between the ceiling and wall.  I COULD scrape it out, tape it anew, mud it and spend weeks feathering it all out, then priming and painting both the wall and ceilings...but that's a TON of work, and I really loathe doing drywall repair.  Thus the laziness reason to do the crown install.
