Hi all

I have removed my fire unit from the fireplace and I would like to "make it good" and hang my TV to the wall.

The area is made up of a (fake?) chimney breast with brick/tiles in the middle for the chimney area.

Should I:

1. Remove existing plasterboard completely, put up new plasterboard and fix TV bracket to the plasterboard, then ask a plaster to skim it.

2. Remove existing plasterboard completely, remove the brick tiles in the middle, add extra timber for TV bracket support, put up MDF and paint me.

Ideally, I want to do as much of the tasks myself with the cleanest finish.

Thank you

Remove all, dot and dab new plasterboard to fireplace ( or you can use foam fix) then you have brickwork to mount tv .(Bear in mind centre of TV above head height is very bad for your neck, long term)
