Our brick fire place is an eye-sore, which is really too bad, because we enjoy having fires so much. I don't know much about brick, but I would say ours is a 'builders' type of brick for exteriors etc., not a finishing type. Whats worse the prior owners of the home seemed to think that crudely painting random bricks in white would look good.
I would love to do some kind of refacing to it but I am not sure where to start. Anyone seen plans to reface a brick fireplace with wood, or a combination of wood and stone?
