Fireplace Remodel Ideas

Good Questions

Q: We are excited to be buying our first home - but of course it hasn't been updated since the 70's! We love the vaulted ceiling (except that they have hideous stucco) but the fireplace as a central key of our home is kind of scary - the base is made of really bad angel stone and the wall is full of 2-3" thick sheet rock! Bad angels, and too much of a dark, dated look for our style. The fireplace is currently not working and is boarded over. We hope to remove the board and put an electric insert in - but what should/can we do with the rest?! Any and all advice welcome please! Thanks!
