How to update a whitewashed (?) fireplace

last month
last modified: last month

Our fireplace was whitewashed (or another type of treatment?) by the previous owners. We really don’t like it- it appears pink & does’t really fit in with the rest of the house.

Can this treatment be reversed??? We don’t love the idea of painting it, but not sure what other options might be out there. Any suggestions?

**additional photo added zoomed out a bit. We will be installing a neutral color carpet (so disregard the dark flooring) and will be adding sconces on either side of the fireplace where the wires are. Also, we don't love the mantel. I think it's an old barn beam that was there when we moved in.
