has anyone resurfaced a brick fireplace with soapstone?

I have an outdated acid-washed brick fireplace surround in my living room which will open up to my kitchen after the renovation planned. I'm planning on soapstone counter material and thinking that it would flow really nicely if I resurfaced the fireplace with matching soapstone. Has anyone done this?

RE: has anyone resurfaced a brick fireplace with soapstone?

We just had our brick fireplace re-surfaced in granite with a white surround. The contractor who worked on it actually advised against matching the kitchen granite -- even though the family room opens up right to the kitchen. He said that a more eclectic style is used where you'd use a variety of stones, mouldings, etc from room to room -- giving it a more custom look. Everything matching is more of a builder standard look. So don't feel the need to match your kitchen counters.
