I agree with DannyT. I redid my fireplace and used a spray can of Black Stove paint as well. Though, I did not paint the surround. I painted the inside walls of the fireplace. You can buy it at most Box Stores or any place they sell fireplaces. If you are looking for a shiney finish, I'd stop at the automotive store and buy engine paint or brake caliper paint. It's the same thing.I want to paint the black fireplace surround, as pictured. Does anyone have advice on the best type of paint to use? Assuming that spray painting is the best option of application?
I bought one can and didn't even use the whole can. If you are painting the surround, I would try and spray it. It will leave a much nicer finish.About how many cans did it take for you to spray your fireplace? Is brushing it on an option or will it look better spraying? I am not the best at spraying? Would brushing leave paint brush marks?
