Painting Interior Chimney

Posted by lpalta (My Page) on

I am not sure where to post my question. I removed the wallpaper from an interior concrete chimney in our upstairs room(s). Pictured is the front of the chimney in my sewing room. The back side of the chimney is in my spare room. I am thinking I would like to paint instead of doing the wallpaper thing. Or, what would you do?

If wallpaper stayed on OK & didn't curl up(from heat) I would think you could use paint just fine. I would sand it & if it's metal liner use primer for metal. If it's concrete use primer that works on it & then do final color. Someone else might have something to say. Is that rust?
