I'm looking for a budget friendly way to update this fireplace

Answered
I would paint this but I really don't like the non-staggered brick so I'd like to cover the brick with something. Would like a rustic wood mantel that goes all the way across. I don't mind the wood, but it's rough, needs to be sanded, and maybe stained? I'm really just looking for some great suggestions! :) Thanks!

    Perhaps you could stucco it and loose some of the accessories it looks a little busy.

    TAKE ALL OUT AND PUT IN 1 LG - WREATH - MIRROR - FLORAL ARRANGEMENT - MAYBE SCONCES ON SIDES

    Determine your budget - it will dictate what/how much you can do!
    First thing - have someone come inspect the fireplace to be sure it's in good shape. I have lots of ideas once I know the budget.

    You could whitewash the brick to tone down the color a bit, then install a thick, rustic wooden mantel - very plain - , and put some flowers on it, or perhaps a mirror above it.

    Budget - probably up to $1500. Fireplace is fine - gas with logs, which I love. :)

    Start with paint or white wash, live with it awhile, if still not happy, go to step two, new mantel or frame it in. Best of luck to you .

    In my opinion, paint is the best option:
