Painting a Brick Fireplace With Chalk Paint®

Midge's board 2 days ago
We painted our outdated red and black brick fireplace and built in bookshelves with Chalk Paint®. The soft grey grout was in pristine condition and since we didn't want a "rolled on" look, we painted each brick individually with Country Grey Chalk Paint® which really added texture. The mantel is painted in Graphite Chalk Paint® and distressed a bit. The built-ins and cabinets are French Linen Chalk Paint® and walls are Country Grey.

The transformation was a pleasure to do and Chalk Paint® was awesome to work with.

  • The before
  • The after
  • The fireplace is bright, clean and modern. The mantel painted in Graphite Chalk Paint® really makes a bold statement. We painted the metal surround with Rust-oleum High Heat Paint.
  • The built in bookshelves and cabinetry is painted French Linen Chalk Paint® and completely changed the look of the room.
