Help with unique drywall outside corner


I have two half walls at the entrance into my shower with an outside corner over 90 degrees. (see picture below, only one shown) One side has regular drywall and the other side has cement board that bullnose tile will go to finish off the edge. What is the best way to finish off this corner? I tried a rounded bullnose bead but they only make it in vinyl and it cannnot bend that far.
I can remove the cement board and resize it if I need to. I can also move the cabinet out of the way.

Should I just fill it in with mud or use a metal corner bead and bend it to the correct angle? PLEASE help!

Re: Help with unique drywall outside corner


My question is, how do you want to finish that edge? Bringing the two surfaces out to a narrow point doesn't seem good or attractive. One option might be to make it a blunt ending like cutting the more extended piece back a bit.

They make a super wide paper faced metal corner but I'm not sure if that is the solution you want.

That kind of thing looks good in the imagination, I would rebuild the corner to be just a normal end of wall.

Combining the comments, I would flatten the joint out and use two paper/metal corners to complete the angles, one on each side, since it will be too wide for a single corner piece. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Strait-Fl...t-90/202579261

There is some nice cornerbead out there you cant get at lowes or home depot. its a plastic core with paper ends... you can make alot of wierd angles with it 'work'

Check contractor supply houses for it.
