We are refinishing our basement.The brick will be too dark for the new room. Took down panelling and we are about to have the whole thing drywalled soon. So drywall over the fireplace would be an option. :)We've looked into all sorts of facades. The project has taken awhile and I'd like something relatively inexpensive, non-time intensive and a dramatic change. Maybe if we drywall we could put tile over it? Something to think about.
We are going to put in gas logs. Are there any considerations we should know about?? If we do go with painting (my husband isn't thrilled with the idea) would that impact the type of paint we should use?
