dressing up drainage board in basement


I'm trying to come up with ideas on how to cover the drainage (dimple) board that runs about 5 inches up my basement wall. My basement walls are now bright white after skimcoating it with Quikwall, but the drainage board is an ugly site. It's making my nice sterile looking wall look crappy. I do not want to add any drywall along the perimeter. I'm leaving it unfinished. Any ideas??

Looks more like glued up rubber baseboards to me.

It's dimple board that they use in interior french drains.
I was thinking of attaching rot resistant baseboard to it with masonry screws. The dimple board is about 1/2 thick.

Or I could cut it to the floor. Then seal it.
