Painting a Brick Fireplace With Chalk Paint®

We painted our outdated red and black brick fireplace and built in bookshelves with Chalk Paint®.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.

    Love it! I adore a painted fireplace, but some don't need complete brick coverage. This is perfect. How do you get anything done? I'd be sitting in there soaking up all the wonderful!

    Very nice! I would have never thought of using chalk paint! My husband has a "no painting wood" rule, but he never said anything about brick! ;)

    Can chalk paint be used behind a wood burning stove? it's about 15" from the brick on the sides & 36" from the back. I'd love to brighten up this area!
