How to straighten a slanted fireplace facade?

AnfroneeSeptember 24, 2013

I am trying to do some projects around the house and my fireplace has always been a feature in my house the bugs me. It starts about a foot below my ceiling and starts slanting outward. It is about a foot from the wall at the base. I am assuming like the the rest of the house it is plaster and lath surface over the fireplace.I am wanting to build it out and make it a straight surface and create a board and batten pattern to reflect other areas of the house with this detail. Anyone have any suggestions on how I might go about doing this, while keeping the fireplace fully functional?
