Sorry about the tiny pics. I don't know how to resize them. You can see everything better on the virtual tour. I emailed a link to your email add above.

Hi any photos of brick fireplaces painted over Id love to see
before and after shots or just after pics. Have a grotty old fireplace
from about 1960 (no fancy mantle just a big square of ugly grey brick) and am going to attempt painting. Yr ideas would be great too.



thanks for the pic Dan your fireplace looks super ...Lana

I'm not sure how to post pictures here but here is a link to a post in our renovation blog about the family room makeover, including before and after pictures of our fireplace. Notice the after picture has the portion above the mantle covered over.

Color / Colour Cooridination Critical

I hope it helps.

I'll bet you never figured on getting this many hits on your brick painting experience, but I too am interested in your before and after photos. I've been told painting my brick would be the worst mistake I'd make. I'd like to prove them wrong.

I was very hesitant as well. It was my wife, the adventurous one, who gave it a go.

She used primer then the paint. And, was really helped, according to her was that the primer was first tinted to be the same colour as the paint. It was very tedioius work but, yes, worked out very nicely, thanks!

I tried Brick-ANew with great results if anybody is still interested in how their product works. The kit comes with everything that you need and great instructions, so it makes the $200 really worth it. I ordered several different things from them, here are some of my favorites on their site:

Wood Fireplace Mantles
Vented Natural Gas Fireplace Logs
Fireplace Decorating

Hi Jamie,

You can see them from within the posting from the URL that I previously gave in my original posting that I think is the last one on the prior page.

Thanks,
Dan

It involves a 5 step process but once you get the brick covered with the base coat it was fun and easy to use. I only wished that I had done it ten years ago when we bought this house. It's made a world of difference in both rooms and has enabled me to decorate and enjoy the brightness of the rooms. I had to order extra paint, since the area of brick wall which surrounds both den and living room with much more coverage than the average brick walls. For the money it was well worth it. I am 71 yrs. old and if I can do it I'm sure anyone can. I have always done painting myself for many years and am picky about the final aspect of the job. I have recived compliments galore and the beauty of it all is that it's much easier to dust the brick wall which I never was able to clean before. If you would like before and after photos of my project email me and I will email you photos.
Please e-mail your before and after

Could I see your before and after photos as well... thinking of the anew brick painting product as well

Do you use your fireplace... I haven't found anything on their site that says it's still ok to use the fireplace after painted?

Do you have before and after photos? Would love to see em?

I Ordered The Brick Anew Kit And Just Finished Painting My Fireplace, Which Had Been Painted A Solid Color Previously. I Love The Results And Would Recommend It To Anyone. It Was Very Easy To Use And I Was Able To Finish It In 4 Hours. It Did Help That The Bricks Had Been Painted Before As The Base Coat Went On Easily. It Looks So Much Better Than Painting With A Solid Color.

I've used my fireplace numerous times since I painted it. Never seemed to be any problem.

Busy Mom...
I just posted some photos of what I used from Bricks Anew that you look at under eyes2020 photos. It was easy and as good as promised. Mine has been on the fireplace about 2 years and no problems. What you actually get from them was more than enough for a standard fireplace. The base coat is a larger can of paint but the others are actually bottles with screw tops you can close up and go back later and adjust if you like. They give you everything you need. I am not sure the photos I posted really give you a good idea of the transformation of the room but I woud do it again in an instant.The first paint stroke is the hardest because it is the scariest!

I would love pictures of your fireplace too, but I just joined and can't PM you yet. I don't want to put my email here. I'm wanting to paint my floor to ceiling fireplace too. I have converted from wood-burning to gas logs. I have a mantle but it's free-floating. I would love to add the full mantle, sides, etc. I see there are places where you can buy them already put together. Might be best for me since I doubt I could do that myself. Just a little pricey for me right now. Looks like your paint job has been very popular here!
