Hi there, I just joined these forums and look forward to learning and sharing here...what a great site!
We live in a nearly 40 yr old split level bungalow with your typical layout...complete with a horribly ugly, floor to ceiling, red brick hearth in the living room that wraps right around to the dining/kitchen. it is a working fireplace but it's rarely used.
Has anyone ever covered one of these with either drywall or a more decorative stone or brick? I have visions of a modern, showy wall with an insert woodstove one day :rolleyes: however the first task is covering this brick. It's really gross.
