Marble pencil trim next to medicine cabinet - doesn't look right . . . ?

When you open the medicine cabinet, you see this edge of marble pencil. It's rather sharp, and I think it looks clumsy and unfinished. What should be done here? Many thanks for advice and suggestions.

The term marble pencil escapes me. Do you mean the protrusion or the rough edge near the brown molding? Also can you take another picture farther away to show us the full cabinet opened and closed?

Here is setup - marble pencil refers to the trim above the field tile. Thanks.

I guess it's a matter of personal taste. They are there as a finishing edge. I see nothing wrong with it. About the only thing you can do is remove it and put on something else. A standard bull nose can be used but you'll need to cut around the outlets.

Or are you referring to the rounded edge as it meets the medicine cabinet edge? I think I might carefully try to file that edge off to a square or straight edge. But really, it's not that big a deal. The only time it's seen is when you open the cabinet.

I think it looks fine. You could file the sharp edges to smooth them out using a sanding stone (the type tile mechanics use to dull sharp edges of freshly cut tile).

I agree, try to clean up the edge some, there's not much else that could be done.
