Please….. get rid of the brass on the front of your fireplace. Fireplace brass is ugly and outdated! Do a fireplace update right now.
It will take you 7.4 minutes.
This is the wonder product for your fireplace update. BBQ grill paint in black. Available at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. It is designed for “High Heat”…. so SHOULD be fine on your fireplace (do I need a disclaimer here?). Just kidding. I’ve done like 10 of these…. no fires yet. It’s safe.
How to do a quick fireplace update
To start your fireplace update: cover everything within spray range EXCEPT the brass strips. Usually the handles are a pain to replace…. so I leave them on and just spray them also.
You should sand the fireplace brass. Then spray away.
Ahhhhhhh…. so much better.
7.4 minutes to a “brass-less” fireplace. Instant fireplace update that changes the whole living room!
This client (A.J.) is a dream client. She is so open to all of my suggestions in her house. Stay tuned for more of her projects to come.
Many blessings and happy painting,
PS…. if you have a gas fireplace, be sure to turn off your pilot light.
PSS… if you have a fireplace that gets super hot, use wisdom!

I also have 10 quick & easy home updates you can do before dinner! These easy improvements will make your home feel fresh and updated! — Painting fireplace brass is one of them! You could also consider painting your fireplace tile! I’ve seen some ugly tile going along with the out-dated brass, so these two changes at once will really bring your house out of the 1980s! (For example, check out this recent blog post about painting the brass trim and tile)
Amazing what a difference just that one little detail makes, isn’t it? Great job.

wow, such a simple little solution with a big bang!
Ahhh thanks for posting this. I have a brass fireplace surround to paint. I always wondered how I’d do it.
Oh, so, so much better! Love it.
Can you do this on shower surrounds too???
You have brought the fireplace into the new millennium.
I’m up for painting anything that’s brass. Instant update! I bet there are a lot of people doing this to their fireplace thanks to this post.

So much better 🙂
Looks great! Nice improvement.
P.S. LOVE your header and blog design!!! Love love!!
You totally did this because you are annoyed that mine is still brass even after you fauxed the tiles right???
OKAY!!!! I will do it!!!
My sister is going to freak at how easy this is.
If you have a gas fireplace, be sure to turn off the pilot light first.
Not sure how to turn off pilot light, so scared to spray my one strip of brass.
Much better! I have a lot of brass that needs painting. Would you use the same type of spray paint for light fixtures or would you recommend something else?
I used the liquid paint with a brush. I didn’t want any overspray. It turned out so wonderful!!! It made a huge difference!!!
Did you have to turn off pilot light with liquid paint? Thanks.
Thank You Thank You Thank You
