We moved into our house five years ago and said the corner fireplace had to be changed. We are now ready to make this happen, we just can't decide how to give it a facelift. The things I do not like is the extremely large hole on top and the "wings" on the side. The living room is not large and this fireplace is not doing it justice. The slate does not go with our furniture and I'm thinking of a wooden surround and painting the slate that remains showing, black. I would like to put some wood detail on top to cover the unsightly hole. I would like it to look timeless and not era specific. Any ideas would be welcome, thanks!
