Covering this exposed corner an easy way?


The attached pictures show what I want to address. This is in my basement, which for the most part my wife and I have almost finished remodeling, and for reasons I don't feel like typing out, I removed the drywall and tiny mini ledge that was on this piece of the concrete foundation. My question is, is there an easy and yet decorative way to cover this over, and without having to deal with drywall and spackle? White vinyl panels of some kind? I'm confident that whoever built this house messed up somewhere along the way because I don't see any reason why it should be there in the first place.

IMO the only way to make it look nice is to cover it with either drywall or wood.

We were thinking about some kind of wood solution also. Might just go with that.

Use a vinyl post sleeve and just cut it to fit what you need.

I might drywall the sides and cap the top with wood and paint it. I'd also mimic the same look on the left of the door where the wall juts out the same way. Make it look like it is suppose to be there.
