The Progression of a
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
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.
