Should I Paint That Brick Fireplace?.... YES!

I walked passed this tired fireplace for 16 years. It really needed some love. I cleared it off, vacuumed it down and we got busy.

First off. It was time to get rid of the brass. It should've been done a long time ago. We started by taping off the glass and anything else that you don't want coated with spray paint. We used Rust-oleum High Heat Spray Paint in Black.

That alone made a huge difference!

using just a couple of primers I had in the garage, we did a light coat - followed by the Glidden White semi gloss, as you can see on the upper body. We planned on using glass tile on the main body and we were undecided as to the need to paint it or not. Some of the tiles were clear and they would need to have a mortar base anyway.

    I loved it as the brick fireplace but the transformation is really fantastic. I would have put facing over the bricks so it could be removed at a later date if desired. Beautiful job though. : )

      It can always be gone over again. But if I were to do anything, It would never be that brick again. Thank you!
