What to do with old heater/fireplace cubby?

Lani Carroll-NewtonFebruary 25, 2013
I would love ideas on this area, we are redoing our house to increase sale value. This typical 80's stack stone irritates me but for some unknown reason my husband likes it but I am looking at house value to make our 80's home sell higher.
I have decided heater comes out (has never worked since day we moved in) and put one of those electric wood fireplaces in the crevice so that is sorted. I had the trim of the mantel being same colour as rest of the house and think the blue paint needs to be broken up.
This room will either be a library or office.
Any advice is appreciated

Stack Stone is all the rage right now...I would pull out the heater and replace it with an energy efficient fire-place insert. If you are painting out the room I would pull the rusty red out of the stone, as it will blend better and not stick out as much. Benjamin Moore's Pottery Red 2085-20 with a creamy trim such as Subtle AF-310 would look pretty.
