Q: So here is my dilemma. My boyfriend and I are renting a gorgeous apartment but the only downfall is this outdated eyesore of a fireplace. The fireplace works but as you can see it is not appealing. Our landlord is a sweetheart but wont let us tile or do anything to permanently change it. So I am asking you guys for some serious help. What can I do to makeover the fireplace that will be removable/temporary? -Sent by Jessica

Editor: Jessica, I'm pretty sure that's an oven. Stick a loaf of bread in there and call it a day! But in all seriousness, what can be done? Fireplaces are supposed to add ambiance and beauty to a home, but this one appears to be slacking- please help!
