Painting brick fireplace is a smart solution if our fireplace is dull or if we merely want to change its color. We just have to choose the color we want to paint the fireplace. Then, we can prepare and clean the brick. We can use sandpaper to go over the surface of our fireplace to remove any loose pieces of mortar, followed by the vacuum to get rid of the dust and dirt. We can also use a bucket of soap and water to clean the brick with a firm brush and allow it dry thoroughly.
Before painting brick fireplace, we can tape off any areas we do not to paint. After that, we can find a primer that we can use on masonry projects. We can use a thick-nap roller, up to 1 inch to cover the surface then go back with a brush to cover the grout. We should allow the primer to dry thoroughly. Then, we can apply our paint color. Using a high-quality latex paint, we can begin to paint the brick using our roller and brush. For complete and long-lasting coverage, we might consider applying 2 or 3 coats of paint.
For painting brick fireplace, we can choose many colors, whether they are classic, bold or neutral. White is a classic choice when painting brick. With a combination of plaster and joint compound, we can create a base that we can then apply paint to. If we want the fireplace become an instant focal point in the room, we can choose cherry red, lemon yellow and a range of bright blue and green tones. Meanwhile, beige, tan, gray, taupe and chocolate hues are options for painting the fireplace a neutral color. For a contemporary look, we can paint the fireplace the same color as the walls. Another idea is to contrast the walls with a darker tone or replicate the color of a feature wall in the fireplace.
