To finish it off we bought molding and my dad helped us install it all 2 weekends ago. Here's a funny tip. I'm not a fan of traditional crown molding for my own home. I'm just not that traditional. Traditional crown molding touches the ceiling on the top and the bottom touches the wall, making a 45 degree angle. Home Depot sells crown molding for $2.09 per linear foot with a thickness of 4 3/4". They also sell a really nice 6 3/8" baseboard for $1.04 per linear foot. Turned upside down you would never know it was baseboard and it looks fantastic! The tip is, when you can't find exactly what you want, let your creative mind guide you.
Pay no attention to the ugly chairs in the picture above. We are still in the process of furnishing our living/dining room. The table and chairs are hand-me-downs from my parents from the 80's (*note the mint green fabric) They serve their purpose and for now will have to do.
What's that shinny new light above the table you ask? My wonderful husband bargained with the store and was able to get the floor model reduced from what was already a sale price. The crystals are attached on either end of the wire and wrap around the chrome bar once. My husband (not an electrician) installed a dimmer switch to the light so we can adjust the mood of the meal. So proud of you hunny!
