Okay, I am fairly new to the whole "home renovation" thing, but I grew up with a Dad who could pretty much do anything....so therefore, it's in my blood. The thing is I don't have the confidence he has and I really want to do this on my own.

It is my understanding the crown molding can be rather difficult, especially in older homes. Whilst shopping in my Home Depot, I found pre-made corner caps and molding. I am curious if anyone has tried these items, which brand do you suggest, and what was the install like? Is it a perfect match for novice home renovationers? In other words, I am looking for a cheap alternative to beautiful crown molding but I also, don't want to waste my time with it if I am better off learning how to cut the molding.

Thanks for your help! =)
