Gap caused by newly removed panels

I removed some 2 foot paneling off the wall and going to leave it as just drywall. On the corner there is a wood arch that has a gap where the paneling use to be. What should I do with it? Should I fill it with something or cover it with some kind of corner trim.

A picture or two would be helpful here.

I agree, pics would help us better understand what you have going on.

I would prefill the gap with joint compound. Once it is dry, apply your folded paper tape into the corner (embed in mud and wipe down tight). Once that is dry, finish it with a couple more coats of mud.

I agree. Just to clarify - you'd apply a thin coat of mud after the prefill coat has dried so the tape can be embedded in the wet mud.

Is the area where the lower paneling used to be flush with the upper area or is it recessed?
