James,

I see a corner cap on the left side in your picture, if that has to stay I would consider running that right down to the floor to make a visual break. Then pull the more ornate baseboard and put a 22.5 degree return on the end. Cut it so it finishes right at the corner cap. Next take a piece of the low base board and make a mitered corner to the existing piece. Scribe that piece to the floor, i.e. make a line the follows the profile of the floor, and cut it off with your jig saw. The intension is to follow the line of the floor on the bottom and maintain the same height. Finish the scribed piece with a 22.5 degree return that fits right against the corner cap.

It's not ideal but with careful fiting and finish it could look like you intended to do it that way.

Good Luck

Jan
