Outside corner Paint/Tile transition

I've got almost everything prepped for my tile job around the bathroom tub except for this outside corner. The tile will end on this corner and the adjacent face will be painted. When I pulled the old tile off I removed the old corner bead that had been nailed into the old drywall underneath. I've put up new cbu on both faces. I plan to skim coat the side to be painted with thinset, then joint compound, then paint. (Right?)

My question is: how do I get a good clean corner here? I bought some new L-shaped corner bead that is 1/4" metal on one side and an inch wide on the other with another 1 1/2" more of paper. I recall reading somewhere that this is what to use but I can't find the reference any longer. Is this what I use? And how do I attach it- with some sort of adhesive? Thinset?

Thanks for the help!

Donna

Hi Donna.

Personally I would use a nail-on metal corner bead. I'm wondering, why did you place CBU on the to-be-painted side of this corner?

Thanks, Mike. Okay, back to the depot one more time!

I used the cbu because I had it left over, enough to cover the space and save myself buying a new sheet of greenboard.

So just get re

Hi Donna,

They make a drywall bead called "J- metal" that you can attach to the outside wall. It won't interfere with your tile on the other side of the corner.

There's no need to use thin set on the outside. Drywall compound will work fine on the backer board.
