Q: I recently purchased a condo with a fireplace that juts out from a side wall. It makes for a really awkward floor plan and I just don't like the current tiling job. I'd really like to remove it all but since that is not cost effective my next hope is for some sort of mantel or surround, but I'm not sure where to begin. Do I just add a shelf? Do I want something that goes around the sides?
