    More or less the same as you paint a pretty one. (?)

    Make sure it's clean. Soot does not paint well. Make sure nothin' is shiny. Shiny does not hold paint. Mask off anything that you don't want painted. Use spray paint and don't forget the primer.

    Best way is to remove it, clean it, prime and then spray paint. To remove try to find an online .pdf booklet for installation and then reverse the process. Most of these old brass screen frames have large butterfly type bolts that attach the frame to the sides of the fireplace opening. However, if these are crusted shut or even melted, removal might not be an option. then just tape off the brick (cover everything inside the fireplace too), clean the brass metal, prime, and paint. I have seen these old screens painted black and they look great. Use a heat resistant black stove paint.

    They have spray paint for fireplace inserts. Use that for heat and flame retardant.
