gap between tile and ceiling - how best to fill?

Hi there!

We recently re-did the tile above our tub and decided to take it all the way up to the ceiling. The problem is that when we got to the top we ended up with an uneven gap due to some unevenness in the ceiling itself. The gap is fine to fill with grout on either end of the tub, but in the middle its upwards of 1/2-3/4". The gap seems big enough that filling with grout just wont look right. Any suggestions? Is grout still our best bet or should we go for something else?

Use tile bullnose trim pieces like the type you may have used on both vertical ends of the surround shown. We can see part of the trim in pic #1 left side, but not all.

Install the pieces upside down, that is with the finished side down over your tiles. The trim is called surface bullnose and the # is S-4269. You'll also need 2 outside corners, SN-4269. They should be available in the exact color you used. U.S. Ceramic Tile Bright Snow White 2 in. x 6 in. Ceramic Surface Cap Wall Tile-U072-S4269-1 - The Home Depot
