Good Questions: Work Around Our Ugly Fireplace?

Good Questions: Work Around Our Ugly Fireplace?

I submitted a question about our rental bathroom awhile back and got such awesome suggestions I thought I'd ask again about another dilemma! Our rental apartment came with a hideous fireplace in the living room and I'm desperate to hide it! It's got horrid colored tiles that we can't even paint over, and the center tile has an "S" imprinted on it (hey "S", the seventies called and they want their fireplace back).. We don't use it because we've got two little babies, and to keep them from banging on the glass cover doors we've stuck our tv table in front of it. Right now it's pretty obvious that we're trying to hide an ugly fireplace, so can you suggest another way to tactfully disguise the eyesore??? Thanks — Corrie
