Spray Paint Fireplace Makeover

Hello Friends!

This past week has been super busy with back to school and trying to settle back into a routine, but I’m hoping with fall approaching, things slow down a little and I can post more regular. I have many exciting projects to share with you in the next few weeks! But first, I have to show you this super easy way to update your fireplace.

Our home was built in the late 90’s and therefore has a lot of gold accents. We’ve replaced all the light fixtures and door knobs but one thing that remained gold was the fireplace. And it’s so simple to redo, we could’ve done it the day we moved into our home. πŸ˜‰

Here’s what it looked like before…

The face of the fireplace is very easy to pop off. I feel bad I didn’t get step by step pictures of this makeover… I’m sorry! We were knee deep in a fireplace makeover (this was just step 1! The makeover didn’t stop there!). So while my husband spray painted this, I was off doing something else.

We found this Rustoleum High Heat spray paint at Home Depot for about $8. It resists heat up to 650C so it is perfect for barbeques, wood stoves and more. Before spray painting, I wiped the “face” to remove any dust or dirt.  We then gave the fireplace face 3 coats and it went on so nicely and dried immediately. It really is a super quick makeover as it only took an evening to do it, including the drying time.

Here’s how it looked after… I love how black it looks and it just “pops” against the white!

My husband totally redid the rest of our fireplace after this. I can’t wait to show you the finished pictures! There’s just a little bit of grout work to do before it’ll be totally done!  I hope to post the finished makeover next Monday!

So, if you have any gold you want to get rid of on your fireplace, run to Home Depot and get that spray paint! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Thanks for stopping by, friends!
