Corner Molding question
 
1 Attachment(s)
The attached picture shows an attempt we made to finish off this portion of our remodeling project. We aren't quite sure how to join some sort of corner molding with the baseboard to make the transition from the brick to the sheetrock look finished. The plinth block was one attempt, but we don't know what should be put in the corner up the wall. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!!!

In my opinion I would have coped the 2 base molding trim together at the bottom then run a piece of thick quarter round up the wall.

A small cove instead of (what looks like) an outside corner piece between brick and drywall.

If you have those plinth blocks in all corners, use one there. If not, you're just drawing attention to it even more, and Isola is right.

Thanks :) and yes probably going to have to keep the blocks there or maybe smaller bock?.... Unless the base can be redone to be closer.

Is that brick or adobe? send us another picture without the corner molding so we can see the gap...

or you could just use some 1x1s to picture frame the whole brick wall (both sides and across the top) - after all, you are trying to showcase it.

To late now but we have an endcap installed on the drywall leaving a little space to the brick like 1/8".

Normally what we do, too. You can use an "L" channel after the fact, but it can be pretty time consuming.
