Default Ugliness...

The room is probably about 25x20 so yea, it's pretty big. The fireplace is proportionate but just ugly. Thanks for all the opinions! I think we'll drywall it and do some natural stone around the fireplace part then ad a mantle.

I'm not sure why anyone would have ever put up lava rock up but they should be shot! lol. Hopefully this thing wont be too bad to take down. I'm getting my dad and boyfriend to do it and hopefully they can demo in a weekend. Does anyone know how much it would be to hire someone to lay the drywall?

Take a peek into RS Means series of books on construction costs. Border's and Barnes & Noble's have them or you can get it from your local library by using their inter-library loan service.
