Question

Do I HAVE to remove firplace doors to paint them?


Hi All,
I know the whole "I hate my brass fireplace doors" is a very common theme, but I have a more specific question about painting the doors and hardware: I understand (and correct me if i'm wrong) that I need to rough up the surfave I want to paint, and that I have to use a high temp paint, but...do I have to use the spray paint kind of paint, or is there a nice brush on paint I could use? And the 2nd part of my question: can I do all this without removing the doors and taking them outside? I was really hoping to work on this project over the course of a few days while my daughter naps. Thanks in advance for your advice

You don't "have" to do anything. Thing is a brushed coat is gonna look like a brushed coat. Some paints and techniques might get you close but a brush coat is a brush coat and a spray coat is a spray coat. JMHO

When you say fireplace doors what to do you mean? Are the glance with metal trim or something? Or metal screens that pull across like curtains.
