K so my setup is not so nearly as elaborate as the rest but I'm still pleased with how its turning out.
You'll have to excuse the night picture, its way over exposed...cheap camera and no tripod make for difficult night shots.
But anyway, the crown is up! Still needs to be caulked and touched up, but it's up and the lights are in. Im pretty pleased with how it turned out. I would not have been happy with the rope lights i got from Lowes if my crown weren't so big. I played around with the position of the rope lights and the closer they got to the ceiling to worse they looked...so luckily with this 7.5" crown it lays all the way at the bottom and looks nice and diffused. At first it wouldn't lay flat(it came in a tight coil) But after I left them on for a couple hours and they heated up a little bit I was able to straighten everything out.
