Repairing Corners

So we had this old wet bar area in this house we just bought and it has some damage all along the bottom. Pic below. I plan on just using some wood siding to hide the gaps between the wall and the stone piece they used, but was wondering about the front corners. What would be the best way to go about repairing that area? Just throw some mud in there to fill it in and let it harden, then sand and paint?

I would recommend you get rid of the "stone" and put a different kind of top on that is longer so that it protrudes farther, and has horns on each end so that the drywall can be finished around it in the manner it should be. You would remove and replace the corner bead after you remove the stone. The new top would be notched to fit OVER the repaired corner bead.

Good info so far. BUT what are we looking at?? Can you take a picture further back. Closeups, even side by side, don't show the entire picture. Oh, welcome to the forums!

Also you can't just fill the voids with j/c - the mud will crack sooner or later.
