painting metal on the front of wood burning fireplace.
Fireplace was installed around 1986. My husband has purchased new fireplace glass doors & we will be installing new tile.
My question is the flat black piece of metal between the fireplace doors & the tile is faded & old looking. He attempted to use a Krylon indoor/outdoor spray flat black paint yesterday to "spruce up". However, this seems to be a bit "blotchy" and when I rub my fingers across it (after 24 hours), some black is on my fingers (like a dirt?). What type of paint should be used in this update?? He is unable to remove this metal to repaint outdoors & as we live in Florida with the heat - the fumes aren't pleasant!!
Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
