How To Spray Paint The Fireplace Surround
Clean the surround with Krud Kutter and a clean towel. Then wipe it down with a damp towel and then a dry towel.
1
Use brown paper or plastic along with some Frogtape to cover up the fireplace insert. I did turn off the gas before doing this.
2
Continue covering everything you don’t want to spray. When it gets to the carpet area, make sure you pull the carpet back and then place the tape.
3
Use a sanding sponge to rough up the tile. Because I planned to use chalk paint, I didn’t do this too crazy
4
I used bulls eye 1.2.3 primer spray paint with my rustoleum spray gun adapter. I would probably suggest after the fact to use the roll on version.
5
The spray is easy, but it stinks. Definitely have all the windows open and I grabbed a spray paint tent to go around me. I kept stopping to air it out
6
Also, if you go the spray primer route, wear a mask. But, again, I recommend you use the regular paint and a roller version of this primer.
7
1 day later, I used Rustoleum chalked paint in aged gray. This did not have a heavy odor, so this part I would definitely do with the spray paint.
8
Follow the directions on the can and do about 2-3 coats waiting 20 minutes in between, but it says what to do on the can. I used 2 cans of spray paint
