Got the crown molding in and painted. No close ups. Im sure you carpenters can spot the joints from a mile away. LOL

It looks great! I have no idea why you are saying carpenters can spot the joints from mile away.

I do wonder about not having any room between the floor and the molding. Don't you want to put carpet there?

Because if you have done it for a living or even have just some experience with finish work like that you can see the gaps filled with caulking even on a photo on the internet( which would hide it vs being there in person ). It looks ok but there is a lot of caulking being used to cover the long/short miter cuts( outside corner ceiling by closet is very obvious ). For someone who has never done it before the OP did a good job however. Not trying to be a jerk just answer your question.

you could not be more correct. trim carpentry is a trade in itself.
i wish i could spend a couple weeks working with a good trim carpenter. but they seem to be harder and harder to find these days.
