I hope you check out Part 1 to see what disgust I was dealing with. Hello 1983! Updating the fireplace was so easy. It was complete within a couple of hours. The after pictures don't show how great it really looks. It's a beautiful matte paint and will be very easy to touch up should any scratches happen. I also sprayed the screens to make them look tip-top. It looks brand new!
After posting this I can see some spots that need a touch up that were not visible otherwise. Gee, thanks for the compliments camera!
I used Rust-oleum's High-Heat spray paint. The color used was Bar-B-Que Black. It's safe up to 1200°. Let's hope our fireplace doesn't reach anywhere near that temperature. You will find that using a trigger attachment when spray painting will relieve the stress on your pointer finger. I know you've abused your finger...what did it ever do to you?
What recent updates have you done that are quick and effective?
