Usually a gap behind crown molding.
Most people don't want to run new cables because it's a pita to fix drywall yourself, and paint. Since you're painting anyway, I would reschedule the painters until you have the cables installed.
DIY Drywall repair can be frustrating and time consuming, if you're not experienced. Hiring someone to do it is very easy.
You can cut holes in the drywall at the top of the walls, and hide the holes behind the crown molding. And, you could run the cables around the room behind the crown molding.
Just reschedule the painters until you have the cables sorted out, and avoid the cost of the crown molding. if you were doing crown molding yourself, there would be less of a chance to nail a cable, but that is a concern.
You can run the cables in the drywall ceiling, below the floor in the garage ceiling, or behind crown molding. You have lots of options.
