Next on my living room project list was painting the fireplace white. It brightened the room up a lot.
It was the same oak color as the floor, which caused it to fade from sight. It didn’t stand out, nor did I think it was pretty.
I had put this job off for a year. I was scared to cover the wood. It felt like it was illegal or something.
A light sanding, 1 coat of Zinsser primer, and 2 coats of paint. I also removed the silver trim around the doors and firebox and spray painted them with heat resistant black paint.
I’m seriously thinking about spray painting the fireplace screen black. It was originally white when I painted it gold. I’m not sure. Any thoughts?
