Brick fireplace covering
I have dismantled an 80's style corner brick fireplace down to just the brick surrounding the firebox and hearth. I am looking for a covering for the brick that will allow me to update the look but not break the bank. I will need something that is non-combustible as it is in close proximity to a wood fireplace.
I have found an interesting stucco product from Durock but it seems like a bit of a speciality item that may be difficult to use. I prefer not to use tiles but rather something very non-descript so the fireplace blends into the room. Anyone have any suggestions for products/process to cover the fireplace brick surround?
