I am wanting advice as to what to do with the fireplace wall. THE FALSE ROCK MUST COME OFF! I like the idea of having the wall plain as per the rest of the room to create the illusion of a bigger space. We need to have the tv on this wall too and I am not sure if the tv above the fire place would work, (I know we will be using the fire often and the heat may not be good for the TV) or a slim line shelf running across the wall on top of the fireplace would be best, with the TV at one end. Here's a photo. The TV is 37inches, and there will also require a place for a DVD player. The distance from the edge of the window to the right to the fireplace itself is 42 inches, and the width the fireplace itself is 36 1/2 inches with the height of the fireplace 27 inches
Love to hear your ideas!
