I have 3 brick shelves I would like to remove from my fireplace. I would like a focal piece instead. How would I remove them?

Stone masons can usually chisel these off so they look natural - though if painted, you may be painting the broken off areas.

If you can't remove them, they can be attractive by painting a darker color as in this photo I would place three tall sculptures on the ledges. Something that is eyecatching and dramatic.

I also think that you might like the space better if there was a contast in wall color with the stone. I would like to see a large mantle. I think that will change your view of the entire fireplace structure.
