how to paint inside of brick fireplace

phoenix2000September 29, 2009

Hello,

We don't/won't use our fireplace. It's inside is red brick with a lot of black soot on it due to use by previous owner. If I want the inside to be painted black, what do I need to do?

thanks.

Brush it with a wire brush to clean it up. Use black stove paint (high temp) - you can buy it in a spray can at a home store.
