Shelf Wall in basement

I have 2 drain pipes that I framed into wall except for the bottom portion going into the floor. I didn't want to lose more room by framing the wall in front. So instead of boxing the two pipes I decided to build a short wall in front of them creating a shelf even with the window. But I have not done correctly thus far. See pic. Any help? I was thinking just drywall over but how considering the gap.

You can attach a strip of wood to the back wall along the face of the studs to provide a ledge along the back to attach your sheetrock. Another option is to sheetrock the vertical sections and make a wood shelf top for the horizontal portion.

The end of that wall needed to be framed like one of these to tie it into the back wall.

Sure looks like you may have been able to use a 2 X 6 instead of the 2 X 4 for a top plate also so the two could be nailed together.

So I figured out what to do on that.
Have another issue see pic.
I used screws so I can take wall apart but would it be difficult to lower the cleanout in the pipe?
