Can this fireplace be saved? (pic)
Les (thanks Les!) brought this up in another thread and it's something that's bothered me for a long time. I hate my fireplace!
My decor is formal and antique in the living room. I drool over old fashioned fireplace surrounds, especially the oak ones with the columns. But almost every fireplace that's traditional looks better to me than this one. The brick goes all the way to the ceiling, which doesn't show in this pic.
Do you have any ideas what I can do with it?
