I have a masonry fireplace that is surrounded by ceramic tile. The wall around this is just plaster over the masonry. I'm wanting to reface all of this from the floor to the ceiling with stone. Likely a limestone look which matches the stone on the outside of my house.
Can I just place decorative stone over the ceramic tile and the plastered wall? Both are in good, solid shape. Or will this require the tile to be stripped and the wall prepped with some other material?
