Ugly Fireplace Syndrome - Help!
I have the ugliest fireplace in my den! I hate the split bricks above going up to the ceiling! And the mantle brick is crooked! I would love suggestions on what to do with it to make it take up less room, since right now it is butted up against windows/doors on both sides. I'd like to remove all of the brick at some point. I'd really like to see some wood around it (maybe some bead board above a wood mantle). I have a cottage style home.
