anyone tried Brick-Anew for painting a fireplace???


MillerClemson--I know this is an old post, but I'd love to see the black fireplace. We just bought a house and I'm dying to paint the fireplace glossy black, but hubby is opposed until he sees examples.

Please send me a few pics

I would appreciate your before and after photos. Do you paint the grout?

I'd love to see your virtual tour too. Does it show the before and after? .... mary

Hi, I was wondering if you "sealed" your fireplace with the the protective finish that the Brick Anew company suggests on the website?

Thanks!

To Ibgal: I did not use the sealer. I thought I might want to add or change the color after I lived with it a while, so I opted to wait to apply. Still haven't applied it and the fireplace hasn't changed a bit.

eyes2020, Thanks so much for the input! It is so helpful. I have been thinking about painting my fireplace for some time now using Brick Anew. It was going to be my summer project! It is reassuring to hear how well it is holding up. I am going to order the kit, but, I think I will hold off on the sealer too. Thanks Again!

Hi! I have ordered the kit and am waiting for it to be delivered! I have taken my "before" picture. I will post the pictures after I complete the fireplace. I have just converted my wood burning fireplace to gas so I will send all pictures when complete!

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.
I would love to see your pictures!!! I have a red brick fireplace and would love to update the color

Thanx so much.....

So is the basic concept that you get a base coat and then apply 2/3 other colors to give the brick appearance? How do you apply the other colors (what type of brush stroke)? And for picking the other colors, do you just pick colors in the same range, just darker than the base?
I'd like to do brick anew, but can't afford it, so I'm looking for a diy solution.
