For what it may be worth, the wife doesn't care for the faux stone fašade of our fireplace. So I was looking at how to remove it and update the look. The stone look is stapled or brad nailed in place. If you get a long screw driver or pry bar you can pop it off all in one piece. The fireplace is held in place with a few screws and pine framing.
I feel sure that if you were to remove it you would have no problem selling it if quick fashion.
OH, what I ended up doing is pulling the brads out of the fašade and apply Velcro to it. Now when I feel the need I can pull the fašade off and place valuables beside the fireplace and then Velcro the stone look back in place. Makes for a great area to conceal items out of sight.
