Hi all! We rent and have an ugly, bulky stone fireplace. I'd like to find some somewhat cheap way to cover it up since actually resurfacing it is kind of out of the question. (my landlord would let me, but at my own expense) I was considernig making basically a 'box' and attaching it over the front, but now I'm concerned that to keep the requisite 8-12" distance from the firebox, that the stone would have to show. I'd like whatever I do to not be truely perminant since this is a rental. Any suggestions?
Here are some photos:
