Clean the fireplace. Be sure the brass trim you are going to paint is clean and dry.
Paint Your Fireplace Brass Trim for an Instant Updated Look!
We have an 80’s fireplace. I’ve been debating for a while about white washing the brick - I just can’t bring myself to make such a permanent change…yet. So, instead of painting the brick, I knew I could give it an updated look with minimal effort by painting the brass trim.
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Paper / plastic
High heat paint or spray paint (black)
Let’s get started!
Cover all other areas that you will NOT be painting. I used a painter’s tape and paper to cover the glass. I also used a drop cloth to cover the brick while painting.
Spray your brass trim with HIGH HEAT paint. It’s super important that you be sure it’s HIGH HEAT. Anything else could start a fire.
Remove the tape and paper / plastic.
Friends, it’s that simple. By painting those brass trim pieces black, the fireplace looks far better than it did before! I’m still debating what to do with the wood handles - any suggestions?
P.S. - Do you see those adorable plants? They are still going strong. See my plant guide for beginners, here.
