Our new house has an ugly, very uneven, faux stone fireplace that goes floor to ceiling. Along one wall, it is 1 3/4" out of plumb from top to bottom, and not at all even. What's the best way, short of ripping it out and replacing it, to add some sort of casing along that wall?
I tried scribing in a piece of the casing I'm using in other areas (3 1/2" colonial style), but the overall out of plumb makes it look "off". And if I simply go along the existing edge, it will look very non-plumb, since there is a plumb edge about 10" away (at the top).
Thanks for any suggestions.
