How can I redo my ugly mobile home fireplace?

I live in a mobile home, it has a fireplace built into the corner of the living room. I hate it it takes up room that I could use. I would like to tear it out but I'm afraid it may be more of a job that I can handle, so I've set an oversized recliner in front of it to hide it, and that of course ex up even more room.

How can I redo my kichen and dining room ceilings simply?

this ceiling got wet due to a toilet overflow, before I bought the house 31/2 years ago. instead of replacing it, it appears the owners did a very poor hit and miss job of skim coating and painting. the house had been sitting empty for a while and once I moved in and the house was heated and cooled regularly, the areas which were ''missed'' began to chip, split and what have you. I have thought about covering it with fake tin ceiling tiles, ship lap, re-skim coating and repainting, etc. I would like to do it myself, if I could, and I am no spring chicken. ideas...
