The Progression of a Fireplace

and Painted Paneling

Paint dark paneling.


Painting paneling is as simple as applying a layer or two of primer, and then choosing a paint color. Do not skimp on the primer for a good paint job. Your room will seem lighter and more updated.

Paint or tile over unattractive fireplace brick.

Painting your fireplace is the quickest and most economical fix for old brick. One step further up is to cover the brick with tile. To cover brick with tile, first you must first make the surface as smooth as possible by adding filler on top of the brick to smooth it flat (Consult your hardware store for the best kind of material for this job).

Then it is just a matter or placing the tiles on top. In the picture ,the tiles are granite. As you can see from the picture, the mantel has yet to be upgraded.
