NOTE: This project is for decorative use only. Tape some brown paper down in front of the fireplace for you to sit on to keep your floor protected while you work! If you're worried about your paint getting onto the woodwork, feel free to tape off that area as well

  1. Clean the fireplace thoroughly. If painting tile, clean it using a window cleaner. If you're painting on brick, you may need to use a specialty cleaner to remove soot. A scrub brush is very helpful for this part.
