I hate to mention it, but now that you put up the pics, you might want to think about painting the walls with some flat paint to hide the sheet rock imperfections.

BTW, not a bad solution to your corner problem.

Also, there may not be an upside and downside to crown, but there's only one way that looks good.

Crown is a great return on investment. Materials are relatively inexpensive and it goes up pretty quick. Be sure to anchor the crown with some hand driven finish nails with some meat on them into studs. Don't rely on the nails from a gun to hold the crown in place over the years unless you know that most are well into wood. Good flexible caulk is a must as crown likes to move with the change in the seasons.

Keep up the good work!

I never noticed how bad the wall looked until I snapped those pictures. Luckily in person it doesn't look as bad. Add another thing to the list!
