Q: Hi, my roommates and I recently moved into classic apartment in Chicago and want to give it a more updated feel. Unfortunately, our living room has this hideous fireplace. It has a great main structure, but it also has a tacky mirror and HORRIBLE green tiling that goes all the way down to the floor and even has some red detailing:
Anyway, our landlord will obviously not let us make any permanent changes to her "beautiful" fireplace, but something needs to change. So if anyone has any temporary solutions of things I could do to cover up this travesty of a fireplace, it would be greatly appreciated!
