Painted Fireplaces – Stone and brick chimneys used to be a hot topic in many homes. Some owners still love this style of the fireplace, but many do not. Removing a stone or brick chimney can be difficult. In addition, the stone chimneys they cover can sometimes be a challenge for homeowners. The easiest and cheapest way to upgrade an obsolete stone or brick fireplace is with paint and a brush. Clean the stone or brick chimney with a damp cloth.
Use the cloth to remove soot and dirt from the surface of the fireplace. Let the fireplace dry completely. Place the covers under the fireplace to protect your floor from the painted fireplaces. Pour a small amount of oil-based primer into a tray. Use a high nap roller and a brush to apply the oil-based primer to the outside area of the fireplace. It is especially important to cover soot areas of the fireplace, or areas that may bleed through the paint.
