I bet you didn’t know you could transform an ugly fireplace with paint – just paint! You don’t have to spend hundreds to rip out your old fireplace and replace it. We certainly didn’t have that kind of cash. We would’ve had to pay to get it taken out and taken away because it was solid granite.As you can see, it was grey and looked like slabs of concrete chucked together. I’ll show you how you too can transform an ugly fireplace with paint.
Note: you can see how the transformation of this fireplace positively enhanced the entire living room after our make-over. It can be found at the Living Room makeover link on our Extreme home-makeover page.
Transform an ugly fireplace with paint
The new fireplace
The fireplace does look brand new! This cost us less than £5.00 I would guess. See the entire look at this living room makeover article. Of course, the time I spent on it is worth a lot more. I used brilliant white, gloss paint for wood and metal. Because I used primer under the paint, it held on properly. Always use primer on materials you’re not sure about before painting.
