    Depends on the style that you want. You could paint it white, texture over it, then paint. You could add some beautiful tiles. Check out Pinterest website for numerous ideas.

    Paint it with a heat resistant paint if your going to use it.

    I went to Home Depot and bought special tile. It came out beautiful. Take a look at the different styles and colors. I picked the silver, black, gray and white colors. It changes the whole room. They have then displayed so you can see them. I did not want the stone pattern but you may like it. My fireplace was yellow brick. I could have painted it but it still would look like brick. This way, it has a whole new look. Hope this helps you.

      I forgot to tell you that I* use my fireplace all of the time. So it is a safe way to redo your fireplace.

    Maybe paint the bricks individually with a watered down brick colour of choice or the whole lot or just do the mortar in between the bricks a different colour.
