Looking to redo our fireplace. Thinking about using veneer stone on the face and sides of it.

In the pictures you can see the upper half where the tv is set in the depth of 1 brick. Do you think it's ok to knock the lower half part that's sticks out further to make everything flush? Reason i dont want to fur the top of to be even with the bottom because the living room is already skinny and the tv will stick out even more. The fireplace can function but we dont plan on using it and hasnt been used in years. Id like to just frame the opening and add a longer electric fireplace, maybe 50". Or possibly just knock out enough brick to frame the electric unit.

Thinking about just using furring strips from top to bottom then cement board. The last picture is an idea of what were looking to do. If any other pics of different angles are needed let me know. I just don't know a ton about fireplaces. Any feedback or tips would be appreciated.
