Window trim


Once I tapped off the wood that would still be exposed, I filled the 'crack' from the rough-out cut of the doors/windows with plaster then sanded the plaster BEFORE I removed the tape. I then painted the wall up to the edge of the wood. I painted the trim separately [before I miter cut the trim - seriously, I cut the trim with an x-acto blade]

Window trim


And here is the finished TRIM! More timely, less costly, exactly the look I was going for! [You could use a stained trim if that fits the style of your home better too!] I found that painted the same color as the wall, generally it 'goes away'... especially at night when the sun isn't casting shadows.
I hope all this helped. Let me know if you have any other questions or need details of any photos!
Good Luck!

It should be very straight forward to remove the old trim carefully, and apply new trim in whatever style you desire. I used my already in place colonial trim, and added to it to make it look custom. Cost a lot less, less work, and the results were what I wanted.

That narrow trim makes it look like a mobil home.
Another way to soften the look of sheetrock returned jams is to install rounded not 90% outside corners. It's as simple as nailing it up and applying drywall compound like on any corner.
