15 Painted Brick Fireplaces
The first thing that you should do before painting the brick is to clean it thoroughly. A wire scrub brush will help you remove any dirt or dust. Apply TSP (trisodium phosphate) and wash it thoroughly with a heavy-duty cleaner. Rinse and let dry. Then it’s time to prime the brick. An oil-based primer will protect your paint against future soot stains as you use the fireplace. Simply lay a drop cloth and apply primer to the entire surface. And when the primer is dry, it’s time to paint. An indoor latex paint is the best choice in a combo with a roller meant for textured surfaces. And in case you cannot reach any spots with a roller, use a small paintbrush.
