You guys. It’s 2016. If you still have this brass on the front of your fireplace, well our friendship is in serious trouble. It is a 15 minute project to paint the fireplace brass trim ….. depending on how many times you check your phone and take potty breaks. You can paint this thing. And you can paint it quickly. I’m going to walk you through it!

This is the only thing you may have to go buy. It’s black spray paint designed for gas grills. If it’s good enough for a hot gas grill, it’s good enough for your fireplace front I promise! Of course, use wisdom in deciding if to paint near your fireplace and whether or not to turn off your pilot light for this project. You’ll need to ask someone smarter than I for this project.
Both Lowe’s and Home Depot carry the High Heat Rustoleum paint. If the spray version terrifies you, you can buy a quart of it on my affiliate link HERE and just brush it on. I’ll forgive you.
First, dust off the fireplace brass.
2nd, tape above and below it with good tape. Diamond Vogel 1.5 inch is my favorite painter’s tape. It’s like blue tape.
3rd, tape off or remove any handles you don’t want sprayed.
Then, tape newspaper all around being sure to have it on the hearth area especially as spray paint “falls”. Any “gaps” in the paper will get spray paint in it, so take your time on this step.
Then, crack a window. Hide your hubby and kids. It’s time to paint the fireplace brass!
Two thin coats of the spray paint will more than cover the fireplace brass. It will take you less than 1 minute for each coat. Be sure you follow directions on the spray can. And if the site of my spraying something INSIDE of a house is giving you hives right now, then just get the paint in the quart form HERE and brush it on. Lol. It’s all good either way.
Here is a quick video of me spraying the fireplace brass for all you visual learners.
And look at that. Seriously. So much better. So much more 2016. We can remain friends!
And there you go. The entire transformation. A painted fireplace brass trim! And if you want to learn how I painted the fireplace tile to cream – check out the next post here.

It’s also easy to paint your kitchen tile and fireplace tile! I painted the kitchen tile to get rid of my brown backsplash as my kitchen was transitioning from browns and golds to a new gray color scheme! Painting tile really helps transform an entire room!
