drywall a brick fireplace
I own a house built in 1959 and it has a "walkaround" corner fireplace. It was built with red bricks which has been painted an ugly gray. I was thinking of drywalling the fireplace instead of removing the gray paint from the bricks (which would take forever). How can this be done?
Are you saying that you intend to cover the fireplace over, or that you want to put drywall over the bricks and then still use the fireplace?
About the only way I can think of attaching is by gluing it to the bricks? I have attached things to brick walls with anchors, but I'm not sure how you would hit the anchors with the drywall in place. Possibly you could prop the drywall up and drill pilot holes through it into the mortor, take down the drywall and install anchors, then screw on the drywall through the pilot holes.
