I have a 70's Fred Flinstone fireplace that I want to change. I'm thinking of covering it with drywall and tiling the bottom part under the mantel. Any suggestions?
Thanks!!

Is the stone natural or is it cultured or faux stone? If the later then remove it and cover it with what ever material you would like.

If you leave it in place then there will be a thickness issue that will effect the demensions of the firebox that will have to be addressed if you plan on making it a workable fireplace.

You better remodel your fireplace, instead of removing the rock. By remodeling it you can make your own desired designs instead of removing the rock. I also did revisions on my fireplace from my old house but then later on, when I bought my new house I let cumar design my fireplace instead of revising the original one.
