Ugly Fireplace Reno
Hi All, I mentioned in another post that my husband and I are closing on our first home in 2 weeks. This fireplace is just plain ugly. Its long and and narrowish room about 12x26, you walk in and both the front and back are floor to ceiling windows, to the right it is open to the dining room and to the left is this eyesore of a fireplace. We plan on refinishing the floors a dark walnut color, removing the wood panelling, and possibly installing built in bookshelves where the wood panelling currently in. What do I do about the fireplace? and that chunky hearth?
