Okay, this truly was a test of my patience. The neighbors may have been forced to close their windows to block off my raucous swearing while I installed this stuff. To add insult to injury, I’m not entirely certain that I like the outcome, but it is done. If I had it to do all over again, I think I would try using 1/4 inch sheetrock, doubled up. I’ve been told it’s very flexible, so it would shape to this curve without too much effort. Live and learn, I guess. The only saving grace in all of this is that it’s in the closet. Perhaps I can buy a cheap mud knife and cut it to the approximate curve to fill in the creases…

As for the remainder of any more curved areas, there is only a narrow section above the double windows that still needs to be covered with sheetrock. Instead of scoring the back and breaking it to the shape, I am going to lay it between two objects (yet to be determined) with some kind of weight in the middle to gently “warp” it into shape. Hopefully that will work better.
