removing a fake mantle from a brick wall
I have a standard (fake) fireplace mantle on my standard rowhouse brick wall. As the mantle takes up precious wall space in a small room (and is basically for decoration only), I’d like to remove the mantle. Does anyone know how to remove a mantle off a brick wall, ideally in once piece? I’ve seen mantles for sale, so it must be possible – but I just can’t figure out how it detaches from the wall. Can any contractor with a toolkit do this? Does anyone have any recommendations on who can/how to do this? Thanks!
